Mis-marked Spot

Mismarked Spot

The chained dog lunges at passers by

Barking fiercely at those who catch his eye

He knows the length of chain on his neck

Scaring those willing to stop by and check

His life is cold he's all alone

His owner scarcely…

Your Wrestle With Life

Your Wrestle With Life



Nobody wants you this much is true

Might as well be a tiny cloud in a sky of blue

Unseen and unnoticed within their midst

Might as well be a…

Mystic Jimmy and the Mermaids (Along with the Suede Milkmaids)

Again, spring ran ahead, horizontal 62 hour rain and hail, flat screen replete (never complete) nor perfect, ever, another checker marathon, audio of Sunlight Dialogues, rooftops balconies, A-train, Coltrane, cross-town elephants winked, eyes on scratchless screens nary blinked, incessant angst or dread, how will all the children be fed, genie in the bottle, maybe back to Walgreens, for 100 red noses: glued…

Waiting in Heaven



Waiting in Heaven

Was your life your personal plane crash?

Seemed like it all went by in a flash

You never had time to reach your dream

It all seemed like some diabolical scheme,



Love was right there at the tip…

Dear Open Saloners:

I don't come here much, but I have an announcement to make and I couldn't think of a better place to put it. (This will also appear on Orphans of Open Salon on Facebook, so I am addressing both groups at once.)

Some of you will remember me as SageMerlin from Open Salon. I used the sagemerlin account to publish my poetry and Alan Milner for my prose.

I just had one of those possible end of life health scares and, while I am not yet completely out of…

Moving On

I keep trying to move on from this graveyard place in my mind

But the past just keeps on creeping up on me from behind,

What happened then was just an illusion…

ordinary love

The things I owe gratitude for,-

oh no that's too stilted.

What I loved much better...

I loved these days in harmony with spirit

and nature and family and eros.

Cannot minimize the many, many times we loved.

We failed. We trusted again.

Because what else was it? The best we could give.

Water. Fire. Wood. Gold and Earth.

We burned through them all didn't we?

Til there is no more to worry over...

"I don't know why…

That'll happen when the oceans stand up and scream,

When the birds fly north on a winter's day
