Thanks Bob. She was parasitic like a voyeur is parasitic, vicariously.

Indian Pipe

Also called Ghost Plant, it takes its name from the shape. Emily Dickinson called it the "preferred flower of life",waxy white, like the pale Victorian gown she wore, never leaving the house for fifteen years; huddled with her bouquet, she stayed in her room during her father's funeral with the door...

Re: Vincent

Your persona poems are some of your best work. Van Gogh is a tough subject due to the fact so much has been written, it's difficult to come up with something fresh. St Remy's was where, I think, Van Gogh began seriously considering ending his life. Starry Night was painted from the window view becau...

Medicine Hat

Kipling called it Hell's basement. We come each year with the kids to float The Seven Persons River. At the airport, we drag our family history like a thick umbilicus. They say Blackfoot women gave birth leaning against a tree, chewed the cord and daubed blood on the baby's forehead. You drink by th...

Re: Upcoming June IBPC 2022:

My offer is clearly based on the fact that that it should be good enough to represent the IBPC. That's my point. It's not your call. Every poem is considered eligible. My comment was addressed to Michael who administers this part of Writers Block. If there are no independent nominations, it can be a...

Re: Kate, Visiting a Friend During Mating Season on her Ostrich Ranch

I admire quirky and this has tons of it as it well as great imagination. However, the premise does not corelate to any experience I've had or even heard of. I just cannot wrap my head around an ostrich in heat pursuing a human to mate with. You're a bird guy and maybe you know something of the matin...

The Red Garden

It has always been that the earth is broken, scarified and tilled. Each sowing done by humble hand with hopes of a bounty to fill near- empty bins of grain, each seed producing after its own kind. Nothing is more proletarian than the Russet whose eyes remain dark with remembrance of the struggle tha...

What The Gardener Heard

The Nation magazine article says that urine makes good fertilizer. So I bought a six pack of Fat Tire hacked away at it all day until dark so the neighbors wouldn't see and gave the bed a good wetting. In about an hour, the Clematis was extolling me on Socialism, agrarian reform and collective farmi...

Lone Star

Texas is the North Korea of the US,
where the Handmaid's Tale meets the Taliban.

We should sell it back to Mexico
for a fifth of Tequila and two straws.
