PUFF OF SMOKE


my fingers caress his cheek
then trace his lips
he speaks, but his words diffuse in the ether
as I move closer, desiring to embrace him
he dissolves before my eyes
gone in a puff of smok

traverse-ity

Buns parted
footlong laid bare
hands reaching
taste buds piqued
teeth nipping
lips conforming
sudden realization
eyes widened
euphoria denied
hands raised in anger
slapping skin
he's forgotten the condiments
......again

Concrete Wood

I just love concrete
Slab on slab
Brick by brick
I love reds
And greys
I embrace
What you call urbanisation
Walk ways, tunnels
Underground car parks
Office and tower blocks
What you call ugly
Gives me wood

For Kathy

You made a mainland
Of my archipelago;
When I drifted
You gave me direction;
Your face in the crowd
Smiled at me.

Damn-It


I
Once,
Had a coal,
Black,
Cat.

Named him,
“Damnit”.

Just,
To,
Annoy,
The neighbors.

When I,
Pushed open,
The back door,
And,
Screamed at the top of my lungs,
For him,
To come in,
For the night.

Words of love


Words.
In expert hands.
Manipulate deftly.

Enthralling you,
Cutting into,
Your life.

Strangling your thoughts.

Winding,
Ropes of spider silk,
Around your heart.

Working,
Magic.

Imprisoning you.

Fantasia


aware of where i place my feet
doing my best to keep my balance
reminds me of the dancing hippos in Fantasia
as i delicately step in my surroundings
trying very hard not to crack up laughing

book of blues


I bought a book
filled with blank pages
bound in work-jeans blue.
I corrupted the blankness
with poems
for no other reason
except that I wanted
to be in a book.
this was the only way.

The Titans

I have the power to bring down the Gods
I know how to summon them
and put them at peace when they are at odds
the world is in chaos because the Gods
can't get along
I unite the Gods with my prayer
and I bind them together with song
I command the Titans
and I right their wrongs

Family
A virgin once lived at home
But not wanting to be alone
Stayed out late
With a date
Her virginity now blown

She married the man
Completed her plan
Had a boy
What a joy
Thus starting her clan

Where You Find It

I traveled deep into a dream
to buy a flask of imagination
but they were all out
So I bought a loaf of murder
to use on my writing block
and it served the same purpose

build me

save me the baby years
keep me the building blocks
clean
and safely tuck them away
to prevent the scars
i wear today.
