he drank tepid coffee
listening to the sad song
from the radio
story of his life

it was crystal clear
that he would never marry again
for he would rather be a monk
than live through heartache again
seeing his ex sleeping
with all members of his football team

could he expound on fidelity
and vows uttered before God
...he thought not
not to her
she was deaf and dumb
spiritually.


Landing, Prowling, Judgement

poet Anonymous

Nephin ( seven hundred and ninty three thousand milimeters above the sea)

if anything  
the road up was long
clichėd t'fuck
with it's mad bends
peppered
with potholes
the size
of giant turtle-shells
( inverted)  

also, beware :  
stray goats
prowling the track
for a car to head-butt
head on

nonetheless
the car climed up
and brought me with it
for the view

saw the runway
at knock shrine
rape the night sky
for the landing
of the seven o'clock
from london

and wondered
if most holy Mary
had visited any more fields
to coerse man
into building an airport
for her

the pretty dandelion
all over the field
yellow carpet
fairy tale beauty

they suit the dreamscape
once thought to be heaven
by those who believed
after a lot of rolled smokes

what a spectacle
they say
be real
be true
but they are gone now.

These die roll four, persisting, resisting
I'd die for an unexisting deccipher
I lie in the shrine of my mind
embolden golden inscription
awaiting translation defined

A stencil of a card
on a plate
was all he had to give
life wasn't easy
dirt poor was not fun

he thought it wasteful
to pay for the large glittery
ones, those you can actually frame
and mount on the wall

He thought he did well
impervious to her disappointment
he is still wondering why he was
assigned to sleep on the couch.

The hunters have become the hunted
I will remain forever puzzled at this  next queer development
The homely  has blossomed into something sexy and vivacious


Angry....purple......five

poet Anonymous

had a feeling he was angry
by the sound his feet made
when they climbed the stairs

the five loud knocks
done much to cement
the feeling

but the big purple head
when I answered the door  
cleared out any doubt
whatsoever


Muffins, pie, ropes


poet Anonymous



no sign
of the muffin man
this Christmas

the children
have already versed a rhyme
to skip their ropes
under the lamp-light

"can you smell the muffin man
from the palace chimney
can you see his ashes
rising to the sky

can you smell the muffin man
from the palace chimney
the muffin man the muffin man
is in Victoria's pie"

Its romantic to think
that one can exit life
with a bang
and a blaze of fire

most often its a slight phsst
like a torched plastic gnome in someone's
garden,

most likely one ends up looking like
a mannequin
in a glass case
with no prince willing to kiss
the grey ashen lips

Swimming and playing among the dolphins and the whales
Frolicked a beautiful young mermaid with flowers in her hair
Hunting for starfish and pearls and shiny sea shells

Was it Practical to live alone
when he was no longer as strong
as before
tough and brave like Thor
welding his hammer

He's old now
frail and wan
like the dying moon
just a frightened
old man...

The Quantum leap
is it a paradigm shift
from rational thoughts
or empty places to go

Remiss of creatures unknown
nothing is promised
forever gone
shadows between the corn

Night dark with flaming eastern sky
Akin to bloodshed on velvet
random glances see
shadows of passing angels.

A scrumptious most delicious childhood flashback-going to the zoo and getting funnel cakes topped with confectionery sugar
Zooming around buzzing off life and sweets
High as the constellations

Buttons,leaves, giraffe
