Keepin it real

Sometimes a good idea goes wrong
you try
but drop the ball
you cry
realize
We all throw stink bombs now and then

Crass

when someone uses crass language
it's rage
or maybe its ire
0r fire
why troll
without it this poem has no soul

Stifle

when you stifle language you stifle art
not smart
it has no heart
instead
be free
artistic verse is a guarantee

Savage Poetry

do savages ever write verse
perverse
or the reverse
adverse
diverse
are savages easy to coerce

Peace

A peaceful world lives on consent
Not force
Give and take scores
No arms
Gun harms
Talking whenever there's descent

It is said, I'm a strange creature.
But no,
I am sure not.
Am I?
I am.
Black lagoons of the heart--say yes.

Love not hate, unite and give thanks
no tears
and no regrets
Freedom
Love thy neighbor more  and forgive

A liquid moonlight silhouette
She frets
A sterling probe
A moan
Alone
Her slow night's dance beneath her robe

poet Anonymous

Twisted Transistor

Dark secrecy of the night sky
your lie
my third-eye blind
to find
your kind
in the lost caverns of my mind

poet Anonymous

Auf Wiedersehen

Had I given a single hoot
you would
(I am quite sure)
discern
that I
was the best thing you never had

poet Anonymous

Questioning

Said Jonah to the lonely whale
"you sir
swallowed me whole!"
The whale
forgave
Jonah for his curious soul.
