Ephemr'l

Life is so blue, how do we do, all of the things that we do?

Hope is the key, it's all that we need, and all that we need to be free.…

All It Took

                            Shelves falling

Hart of the Deal (a writer's log)

I'd promised my landlady not to spontaneously type here until all the rent is caught up, PIF, and an adroit avatar input rather than this LOCH NESS gargoylism proffered to us'in newbees.

However a torrent of sustained irony keeps me hanging on, e.g.: my capital F failure as a poet, journalist, short story writer, vignette writer, all of it, the poet, pauper, pawn and ....

Even now the apparent waste and near worthlessness of my 24 month earnstwhile endeavor,  or so:…

Reverie by the Sea - Poetry

There are so many songs about the sea

Poems gather us in, writ large and small

Mystery trembles in my soul at the shore,

And finds its peace in the voices of the surf.

 

Storms wrack the beach and pummel men’s efforts…

Next One !

My Irish buddy says "Next One ! ", or at least did, after working on our most arduous days. Some of our under-house reconstruction jobs meant hours on our backs with the same tools needed when one is standing and building. It would be incredibly difficult and painful, and at the end of the day our…

An Ode to Back Pain

It isn't that sharp

Doesn't make me all stagger

It's just always there

Makes me feel like a laggard

It drains me of strength

I want to lay down and sleep

It's all I can do

As I watch my will seep

Away to the nethers

Where my spirit can't reach

No one can describe it

It's not something you teach

Back pain is awful

Spasms and weakness abound

I must go to work now

I'll see you around

As I shuffle on…

On a brilliant morning in the spring of 1977, I first saw the most beautiful woman who ever touched my life and arrived within one degree of separation of Leonard Cohen

Julie Marie Vaillancourt was the 17 year old daughter of Suzanne Verdal McCallister and sculptor Armand…

HAPPINESS

HAPPINESS

A hummingbird in the garage

No, not parked alongside the car

but hovering, frantically (they are frantic creatures)

Inches from the ceiling. It is darting back and forth

Against the white expanse as though a portal to

The natural world might appear but, actually, two very large

Portals, the open garage doors are there, just there

A few feet below where it - oh come on! -

Will not go.

Though I have no way of determining the…
