Dominion

Find meat stuck in teeth of glaze-eyed Beasts, Of prey from some dangerless lands, Pluck out what was left from unprincipled feasts, And show them the fibrous strands. Upon seeing these, it'd cause no unease, Save for those with the conscience of rams, To dismantlers by degrees, as dutch elm disease, In unremorseful-laden hands. Find... Continue Reading →

The Bezoar

Was it delusion? Few among us would argue that it wasn't But be assured, their ghastly footsteps came by a dozen In that seclusion With wooded life glaring at me on despairing knees.

A Come-Hell-or-High-Water Positivity

CLICK HERE for an introduction and read-aloud of this poem Holding, tightly, to his glad-to-be-alives, Managing, rightly, his ability to thrive, Draining unsightly veins that will survive, Preserving gratitude with his own formaldehyde. He's a walking, talking you-can't-bring-me-down, With a stitched-on, smile-glued face without a frown, Whose sadness was murdered by a frozen-grinned clown And... Continue Reading →
