Audience (poem)

Recognition realization reformation invigoration.Applause, laughter… oohs and awes.They are compelled to stimulation…Want performance without pause… The famed glory: an edifice of interest.That same story simply said in this: If they love you, will you love you more?Without that thumb, your work a bore?How do you construct and define your score?Musically? Arranged? Goals? Points? What for? […]

Mist (poem)

Misting misty mist.Sweeping swooping puffy looping,vapor splendor mists oft spread,graveyards’ render mists of dread.Tendrils tighten twirl dissipate.Clouds conceal reveal amalgamate.Fingers: thready, furled eddy,lingers steady, curled, ready. Once tried to touch it,…but always missed.Ever elusive, and rampant mist.

Bar Taco (poem, anecdote)

Bass. Basking beige lights.Horns trumpeting, drums drumming.Plaid clad servers’ showing sights.Placate and fall to quiet humming. Smooth tequila might be a trickster.Lane’s smile: ever welcoming,“Chittle-clickle” shaking ice in the mixture.The thought, “too much?” …a seldom thing. Miniature delectable morsels delight.Perfectly portioned tasty tamales.Evermore drinks: flavors so slight.Bar Taco: 5 flavors and brilliant umami!

Dog stares at stairs (poem, anecdote)

Watch as a dog stares down the stairs.See the doubt of animal foresight.Look at the creature look around.In a moment’s eye contact: see her plight. “Carry me. It’d be so easy for you…”Look at her, consider what you’ve done,contemplate what to do.Sassy, Tashi, Duncan, and Freckles too.Remembering when I heard him fell.And that fear I felt […]

N^Ed.word (poem, anecdote)

Let’s jump on the trampoline. Let’s attack Charlie. Let’s do engineering. Let’s fierce without folly. An EMT coding with light. A nude dinghy ride at moonlight. How about a sail? Let’s bake some bread. Then without fail, find a great wife to wed. 2 kids you say? Hilary, I dare 3 more! Christine and Charlie […]

Morning Joe (poem)

Black, brown, strong, smooth, silky. Drip it. Sip it. Cup it. Mug it. Taste it. Face it. A pungent toasty aroma: Invigorating, uplifting, eye-opening and stimulating. Consume the coffee, Stain your teeth, dip biscotti, turn a leaf. Wake up. Smell the brew. Get up. Taste it too. Drink up. Feel it through. Wake up! This […]

Unfiltered (poem, thought)

Walk down a hall.Drift through a chasm.Notice all: Big. Small.Slow or fast phantom. Imagine my world… with no blind eyes.Become wearily wise with imagination.Surround yourself with lovely gals and guys.Succumb yourself into illogical infatuation. Things happen that I cannot explain.Lying is terribly complicated.Explaining thoughts is what I disdain.My mind: dumbfounded. Future: dumb-fated. I’m tired, bleary, […]
