Angel of the Water

An Angel Who already had a Name Belonging to her parents That Angel grew through the years Rushing down, down, down the stream of life See, look quick! Blood is thicker than any other blood The Water flowed under the bridge of time Carrying away memory of me An Angel who already had a Name Perched upon a hidden unnamed shoulder A daughter’s… Continue reading Angel of the Water

Thoughts on writing


I always loved “Annabel Lee,” by Edgar Allen Poe. That's kind of what got me motivated at a young age to start writing poetry and short stories. Much later in life I came across reading “Open All Night,” a book of what I see as prose poetry by Charles Bukowski.

Meet Duff

Meet Duff Chapter 1 Think Pink! It's Monday. Morty was going to blow his head off. When the Lumberjack appeared, he laughed in his face, wildly swinging a double edged AXE. He whispered in his ear.

Hell Bent

Hell bent and nothing left to lose Pulled the long worn tarp off the fifty nine Cad in that dusty old one car garage Squeezed into that crusty leather jacket Started up old Black Bessie with decrepit battery cables Driving nineteen sixty three Cadillac Hearse down my shady road full of dark houses Hell bent… Continue reading Hell Bent

Sweet Addiction

Oh, give praise to the glory of that precious hot black bitter poison we just have to have in the morning! Better than gold it is Gets us up and going A gift that keeps on giving That wormy Trojan horse! That double edged knife! That two sided coin! That keeps on robbing our lives and… Continue reading Sweet Addiction

There’s bad in the world   There’s good in the world   But, where does it live?   Where is good and bad, really?   Isn’t it in the hearts and minds of mankind?   I do pray, but I can’t tell outside me that anything has been changed by God because of me and… Continue reading Change
