Old Number One

....thou shalt have no strange gods before me. Not the crazy six- armed one with A cocktail in each hand who drags You out to bars on a Friday night, The one-eyed one staring woodenly, Cigar in his mouth like Churchill, Lap full of pesos and coconuts.. Last night I dreamt your alabaster Breasts kiss...

Ten Thousand Ways to Die by Water

Before anyone could know, you were a kidney bean suspended in a soup of embryonic fluid tethered by a suckery tentacle. At twelve, grandma and grandpa where there to watch you go under. The Reverend told you to pinch your nose and lean back. The hem of his garment billowed like an electric jellyfish...

Church of Pain V2

Jesus carves a hollow in you, builds Himself a place to live. Scuttling ushers take up offering, ransom for the rebel King. When my time comes I'll bite the biscuit, wash it with a sup of wine. Tell Mother Mary how I'm sorry to have hurt her baby boy. He carves a hollow in the breast, crawls inside ...

Re: Kite Flying

To me this is a good example of "show, don't tell " we learn a lot about this couple, their dynamic. N places himself in a subordinate role, never quite measuring up but willing to mollify, to run faster,try harder, and his fear he may lose her is ever present, despite his best effort . I love " rei...

Song of the Drowned

We all live in a yellow submarine. Aeons of war and shipwreck have left our bones scattered across ocean floors the way a reckless child strews sticks. We rise from the tangle of spars and masts, reassemble ourselves like tinker toys, don skin and clothes, revisit the world of men just long enough f...

Re: Our Parents

I get where you're going. I think the choice of descriptions don't carry the poem. I suggest better metaphors or if you need to keep them, add a stanza or two. As is, it's fairly sterile for such an emotional subject
