Armageddon Day

Crucified scarecrow
With a pumpkin head
Summon forth
The King of the Dead

Gabriel, Gabriel
Come blow your horn
There's fire in the sky
And blood on the corn

Beethoven's Rage Over a Lost Penny

He dines on a supper of cold mutton, retires to the drawing room to nap. It is difficult to rest for all the ringing. There have been grievances from neighbors: why must he play so loud that even the deaf can hear him. The Burgermiester tut-tuts. It is a small price to be inhabited by such genius. B...

Re: Coming Clean

Excellent crit Judy. In all candor, I sometimes write what pops into my head at 3 am. Sometimes it turns into decent poem. I'm ok when it doesn't. Thank you .

Coming Clean

Can't find my lighter. Again. So I said I will call my son, Jordan. Do you secretly come into my house at night and move things? Been hitting the Dewar's again, Pops?

Crossing Into South Carolina

Driving back from the beach, my new lover has her shoes off, feet on the dash,seat back so there's no other path the seatbelt can take except right between her breasts and it's distracting. She catches me looking and says "One's bigger than the other you know", laughs and watches my face for a react...

Re: The Neighbor

Judyt. Pleasure to read your work. This is a stark poem that rings true. It isn't over the top, nor does it ask for sympathy. But it also offers no hope. That's what is good about it, the reader decides. I hope you stick around. Pick a poem or two and leave your thoughts. It's how we pay the bills. ...

Wild Ponies

The wild ponies of the Outer Banks have held fast over five hundred years swam ashore from a sinking Spanish galleon. They say Blackbeard captured one and hung a lantern from it's neck, turned it loose to roam the dunes, fool ships to run aground thinking it a harbor light. I saved a little money to...
