The Poet Is Off

I am not good nor evil
Right or wrong
Relevant ? I suppose only to me
I do not curse or bless him or her
I retain bits of moments … confetti in weight
Enriching? Perhaps but not lasting
Why ask at all? Are you the elusive Care?
Learned? I learn many useless and useful things
What I want is what world won’t give
Far too boring for the masses
Consideration for coveted membership
And please more human … less race

Words For Peter

Many moons ago

Some goodhearted forces agreed

To grant an unsolicited wish

The conjuring of you proceeded

Strength, kindness and love

A few elements of your soul

Humor, inspiration and wit

Issued from a thoughtful mind

Your life is joyous chaos

Thank everything  that you were born!


Pesky Thing

Old is routinely coming

It visits much too often

Understanding the need

The drive to radically alter

No surgeon, no makeup

Hair, nails pampering – allowed

Hello? They appear in mirror

Four facial criminals – Hair

Pretty nails proceed with plucking

All but one evicted – pesky thing


Fell several times on padded backside

Thus opened the door – unknowingly

Pins and needles, arrived – annoying 

It’s not slowing me down, says prideful self

Foolish choice, true to form – ignore, ignore

Months with aggressively violent guest

Invaded with numbness, weakness , pain

Medically tested and scanned – finally dubbed

Lumbar radiculopathy L-5 pinched nerve

Eviction of nuisance? Not easy but it will be done

Writer or symptoms – someone must move

My greatest non-human love

Consistently there from day 1

Stained by sorrowful tears

Bearing the brunt of raging limbs

Witness to pleasant and avant-garde dreams

Partner when the downs are my skin

How ill I am – you know all too well

Prompt up upon you now – writer writes

It’s tragic when I leave my bed

The Principled No

Beautifully virile troublemaker
Housed in fantasizing head
Therefore lives a secret yearning
Until a smile – in real life
Smile parts to issue flirtatious verses
Invitation for carnal fulfillment arrives
Walk through his temptation door
And then the ruin escapes his mouth
He’s a Democrat who voted for Trump!


In spurts and droplets
In torrent floods
Letters questionably unite
Give birth to insightful words
Words wiggling about seeking form
Within crippled yet stubborn brain
Defending rights to be renamed
Frightened Poet sobs on page
One laborious, well penned poem
Now create again

Enemy Stairs

Passed through you easily
Many happy days ago
No contention at all … until
Lower extremities died, perhaps?
No – just suicidal for a time
Dear physical terrorist arrives
Lifting, pushing, lecturing away
Walker, nothing, commode, cane
Face you again and again
Terror hits relentlessly
That’s where I fell multiple times
Clutch railing, sob with all steps
Feel Sun and Wind embrace me
Walk like a crippled writer
Ignore the awful truth for a while
I have to go back again

Wicked weakness, you engulfed me
Strange hands handled me
I didn’t know or want it
Awake and asleep .. possibly
Nightmare is real
Traitors are obsolete legs, feet
Stuttering mouth follows
Mind betrayal too? No! Make it end!
Memories, logic,  neglected words
Unjustly they turn away
Why did coma come visit me
Ah yes, culpable prescribed lithium
