      Taken for Granted I'll tell you what freedom is to me: no fear. I mean, really, no fear!" -- Nina Simone Freedom to put off fixing that taillight on a car that still flaunts an Obama bumper sticker. Freedom to buy one item and carry it out of the store without a bag. Ev...

            Agkistrodon contortrix This city's asquirm with vipers. You risk meeting one when you step off the curb or turn back your sheets. A civic group beheaded the snake that bit poor Mr. Farmer, and the air grew thick with confetti and heavy with songs for a day. -- Ian Erinson ...

              Predation Proud The eagle is old. His feathers are greasy, ragged, lousy. Half-blind, he blinks against the sun he once looked in the face, equal to equal. Hungry. He’s always hungry. He spies a wake of vultures tearing at a rotting deer carcass. Screeches. Believes they&rsqu...

                NaPoWriMo 2021, Day 24: I Never Drink Alone

                Social Drinking I never drink alone. Summer afternoon: As I sit on my porch, My fingers curled around A sweating glass of scotch, Chickadees sing to me And cicadas gossip. A shy breeze flirts, kissing My cheek with her cool lips Before running away. Intuitions visit Of days and ...

                  NaPoWriMo 2021, Day 25: Putting on Cyrano

                  Putting on Cyrano For D.K. Putting on Cyrano de Bergerac makes everbody adolescent horny. For a few weeks we all moon, romantic and doomed. You had a bit part and I was in wardrobe, but we were the stars in our own star-crossed drama. The audience in our heads held its breath e...

                    NaPoWriMo 2021, Day 26: Immortality

                    Immortality Slighter than an atom is to the Earth am I to the universe, my life to the life of the cosmos. A raindrop in a hurricane, a rose petal torn off and rushed along by storm winds, a hummingbird's egg crushed by an earthquake, such am I. Even in the little world of my l...

                      Against Nirvana Somehow I escaped non-existence. Whatever this life is I've escaped to, I hope reincarnation awaits on the other side. Fruits ripen I haven't tasted, violins hold melodies I haven't heard, unknown friends wait to meet me. Count me as one who doesn't...

                        Why I Did Not The ugliness of the Gorgons is a myth. Medusa’s suitors were like Narcissus held by a beauty that made all doing irrelevant, and so delicately complete any touch could only destroy. — Thomas Gorn ”Why I Did Not” by Thomas Gorn is l...
