Praying Mantis/Nineteen Sentences/Motionless

Rhyme he thought reading Mary with a sense of gratitude, trepidation and a rankle of powerlessness.

Terrifically a first-season squirrel boxed its reflection, marching off to dig beneath the pine.

Out of periphery an apparent squirrel feud/flight/faster than grey-line; leapt over chipmunk, that red berry, tearing through dead tiger lilium up another tree with rapid spiral, a faux battle.

Eye scratching, reverse…

Was Anything Ever Meant to Be?

Was Anything Ever Meant to Be?

My first love was a willowy Southern Bell

Ten years together and it didn't turn out well

Welcome to my personal living hell

Did she really love me? I could never tell,…

Parade Rest Poem

Yeomen poets might be intimidated, the editors apparently at rest, but from what I know, none of the above, then a teeter-totter, a twix yet twain, what about the balance, a suspension of motion, a leveling of circumstance wherein Art is not history, Art is the future, a sculpture: two people, neither up nor down, eye to eye --level in suspended animation, a supra-balance this. At the exclusion of the news, better never bitter dreams, possible because you said so, as well as an…

How And Why I Thrived As THE Lobbyist For Billionaires

remained
one step
ahead
enjoyed that
good
gospel
beat
jumped so high
Cadillac SRX
full glide
drove through the
pouring rain
toward
SXSW
sang every song
that co-pilot knew
saw wrongs
tried to
right them
learned when to
stop typing
told a joke or two
left the world better
than I found it
about a small
oh so human
minority
you don't
know

When You Realize You've Been Writing ' In The Wind '

sure you sang sad, but I don’t recall hearing it...and what is new under these raindrops anyway?

snow shadowed meadows, spring shall be courageous and bold, never old

and I am used to rain and getting used to getting old, too

1st now I'm rediscovering sight, sound and wine at room though so deeply underground

know that it's been okay,

or how'd we say,

family country God?

no the other way around

I have been good for a gone awhile

forever in my…

Two Sweethearts

He dreamt one more time of those whoosh rides always west beelined wayward waiting for Wyoming to pass where there ain't no trees scant green teas and Wanda with her sweet petite feet tucked her hair up so waveringly perfect as warm wine. The home rolleds impossible to light what with the dash air conditioned power-drive tidalwave-like aeroplane exhaust as you baby could hear the wind whistle see its dry sand imperative…

Rain Check

keen and bright as zirconi:

quietus:

his diamond train ride

snored Mr. Mahoney

a crepuscular summer moth

the numbered shirt cloth

of horsehide

he dreamt

the raucous ride

the boys of summer

possessed his snooze

timeless bricks and mortar

green ivied walls of bit cigars

on warm play ball! lights

spiced mustard

sticky yelling kids

Intruder on a Sunday, on a Glossed Line

RATE: 2

you that is rancid against the screen door

don't give an inch analog narratives frame

never split the line how you are reading put down your knapsack

the National League when you see my knowledge

dusted chalk fly balls 10,000 raw digital a kaleidoscope of

marked as hits packets, those pathetic broken minds

Crowded fields vignettes: you'd name your

He Rolled Seven

RATE: 3

Jesus, she could dance, her back was strong for sure when she stopped suddenly and did not lurch nor airily sway or list --- only raising her arms when she bowed, a strong, dainty half- naked hinge, a folded black cloth:

men whistling like jungle birds smashing their hands and yellllllllllllllliiiig hooting stomping, drunkards up jumping crazed dodos with gin blotched silk ties, yodeling big-eyed through fly-crapped…

TRINE .. (ReRead)

But thrice is the trine device of life;

as there is always a Third Element, that of choice.…

hartfile final poem at the bar, Merica to Crawley (prose poem)

Merica gets off the bus, Orgood describes her to Crawley as she jaywalks toward the Eagle Eye catty-corner in over-the-calf spike/\heeled black boots.

In awhile as she cheerfully warms up hanging her faux ermine jacket near the jukebox, removing a Strunk and White yellow covered book from her pelt-like muff, Merica says,

"Crawley, what'd think of this one?"

Crawley rocks to and fro. Rinnie paces about, his eyes reflecting the blue noon sky. Merica perfects her lipstick in…

Hill 0' BeanZ {poem}

Kan't believe I~am

ritalin this off the

top o my head

Or why the naval

academy has often

taught:

go ahead hit the

head.

Sure sure why dinnit

I stay in

bed

Too old to rewed:

choose a bride's song

slow-motion-argument

of dread or break bread

Sides? Minstrels? Olives?

If I wanted epiphany,                                                                                                                               …
