When it becomes an Issue

Grease that bloodletting company machine

cash in your slave wages

someone’s goanna get screwed

doing all the dirty work

unleashing trained baboons.

taxes get paid

so the

do nothings of society

 thrive and breed

us out of existence

replacing us with Continue reading “When it becomes an Issue”


Door Without a Screen

Lookin’ out

a door without a screen


Mr.Red Alley Cat

a screechin’

playin’ that country fiddle

dancin’ on hind feet

tail a waggin’ in the wind

tryin’ to tickle your fancy

against full moon


vainly teaching

insane Arizonans

drinking hillbilly liquor

from a drippin’ boiling still

is like Continue reading “Door Without a Screen”

Poetry as Long as it Takes

Paranoia is Real

as long as you were accurate

when you shouted

‘It’s not my fault, it just got let out of the box!’

That thing got leaked out

Provoking someone’s mind

causing it to riddle

and wince


when you flap your wings

landing in the promised land

Planet Oregon

You throw a Hobo hopping on a train

a warm frothy beer

and when he catches it he yells Continue reading “Poetry as Long as it Takes”

No One Lives There Anymore

No one lives there anymore

In that old abandoned house

over there

even this hermit

this old hobo

worn out soul

as you can see

except for me

No one lives on the side of the road

No smoke comes out of that

tumbled down chimney

windows unboarded

with Continue reading “No One Lives There Anymore”

The Beauty of a Real Friend

The beauty of a real friend

is the feeling you get

because you know you can do no wrong

you won’t be betrayed

you never get rejected

you never get your heart broken

you will always be loved.

when I was young

I don’t think I had a large capacity to Continue reading “The Beauty of a Real Friend”

You Just have to Deal with it

You just have to deal with it

that thing called


those things you’d rather not

deal with

you put back on the shelf

they roll off

landing in your lap


Sometimes, you have to be

 your own Parent

 your own do-it-yourself



Snake Oil Salesman…

You try to control

but, never Continue reading “You Just have to Deal with it”

Bitter and Sweet


when you grow

you reflect…

on all those wasted

bygone years

never to return

no second chance

yet, lessons are learned

so sorry for the things you did

so sorry for those things you’d said

you can’t erase any of Continue reading “Bitter and Sweet”

Grass in a Vase

Wish you were here

watching that

grass in a vase

atop that short wooden

worm eaten

coffee table

rustic picture

growing slowly

those tall

grassy fields of weeds

trimmed tight

overgrown hair


yellow cat

eyes looking out

grass so sweet

cats in sheer


meowing as Continue reading “Grass in a Vase”

I Just had to Write this one

You know I just had to write this one

If you have been reading me

you probably figured out I’m not necessarily

politically correct

good, bad, or indifferent,

that’s just how those cards landed

but, it goes even further than that…

I don’t mind admitting my failings

I don’t do it for just anyone

I especially don’t want to tell someone

known to Continue reading “I Just had to Write this one”
