RATE: 4 Flag

I would set a mood just like my youthful grandmother, aunts and mother would set out green plates and beige bowls ringed by burgundy and forest green lines most Sundays after Mass.

A large tin pot of chicken soup simmered on a gas range. Grandpa in herringbone pants, suspender-ed, had been home from the South Pacific for six, seven maybe even eight years by then and never slept real good, loving even cold coffee, sometimes…

whom I'd spun on the Bose, after having tired of my cable system's music selections.

Thistle thieves and an acrobatic redhead oblivious that an old, old friend had…

1st Day of Filmic Fall

the heart ache exists

remains yet resists 

at home

tooth and nail

without fail

safe, secure


word de jure

nothing for sure

dryer balls spin

ring flounce ping


finger to thumb

before the snow


washed pocket change




Here comes Murphy's Law

a right cross to the jaw


an inverse V of geese

wing southeast

Words for the Thai Adventurous Kids and Rescue Team: WWPS?

WWPS What Would Plato Say?

We're all Thai this morning!                                                                                                                                                                                          Allow me to mention, without guarantee, that prayer works, as we saw your humble namaste on TV.

Hey brave crew!

You're alert to shadows, first you'll see, free of that cold dank night.                                                     …

Compliment to Steel Breeze & His Heigh-Ho WC Hero Post

Whoa! You repair, fix, wrench-ratchet-redux 'make it better' faster than Con Chapman writes! Faster than the news cycle!

I was going to say: Gloria and I thought of going up to Billy Mitchell Field --- where we used to park watching the submarine races with plans of Instagramming Air Force I (POTUS & Governor Walker yesterday brass-shoveled potholes---cutting ribbon for the controversial Foxconn Inc., in Mount Pleasant, WI.

I Am Not the Only One

Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions - It's Alright (August, 1963


Apropos the continuous humanistic need for discourse, dialog harmony and all the goals of utopia, time like a slipped clutch on a moonlit asphalt blue highway, why don't we strive toward the Disneyesque reconstruction of all our urban goals...

If fiction is dead, reality is not far behind.

Shall Be

Perhaps I'm a step too rickety to cast myself as Bro Love & the Loaves, where ever I peg my hats been home. How many how very many FEB thirds? Eighteen years and counting already older than the War on Poverty. A waned sense of has-beanism, yet a master's quest often near light prism(s).  A random mirror tile --- overhead squiggly bulb just so --- wall's image: trapezoidal.  4 corners due east.  Ancient obelisk, pink contrails form that jet triad.  Blue fijord…

It is also the name of the academic field of study which studies how to create computers and computer software that are capable of intelligent behavior. Major AI researchers and textbooks define this field as "the study and design of intelligent agents",[1] in which an intelligent agent is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success.[2] John McCarthy, who…

If Stories Were Morning Glories

I would not be concerned

what to wear toward

one big show

my re-buttoned 49 YO

Sargent Pepper epaulette*

*An ornamental shoulder piece on an item of clothing, especially on the coat or jacket of a military uniform


over my cool John Lennon Portrait T

my County Zoo green-billed cap

remembering Agnew

podium pounding

and how the black-haired

mounted police

swinging sticks

Two Maybe Three Thursday Poems

Weathered wood of Einstein grey,

no old folk, not even kids with time

to be kids,

no time to play

recess was cancelled the day the whiteboard rolled

off the truck

Wonder Howl {poem}

I was nearby, thoughts on auto pilot And I promised him everything I could give

If only he would make the music live* wind chill -9 no train fare but

a good-sounding 6 banger fingers too stung-numb to cross reports

or detritus naked to the eye or would the ox survive with no blue tail

flies to swoosh would the missile confuse its point only to implode time clocks

and GPAs fast forward zoom…
