light tower

when you create art,
a trail of bread crumbs becomes left behind

this may someday help someone who is lost,
find their way home across the bay

believe ?

you either believe in something,
or you don’t.

basically you have two choices,
and of course the choice is all yours.


highly controversial
was the common sense individual,
mostly because so many
over complicated a simple way of life

some even brought torture,
libel, slander, betrayal and murder
to the table ….

these are not the most ideal guests
to have over for dinner.

Easter Sunday

make no doubt about it,
the lady is in control

she determines when the time is right,
weather it be day or night

mother nature is a god,
she will spread sunshine
or piss like sour ass wine,
both with a wink and a nod ….

off she goes
on another adventure
of a lifetime ….

why you may say ?

because it is in her DNA

there are scratchings on this screen
that no fingernail polish remover
could ever wipe completely clean

some sweeter than sugarcane
sprinkled upon potato pancakes
freshly melted with butter, somewhat insane

others a bit more raunchier and raw
which any springtime sprung on Earth
however warm hearted would coldly dare thaw

then there is this fucking leaf that refused to fall
no matter how much winter barked in its face
with all forgotten ignorance yet ever so timely gall

just what exactly is the leaf trying to say
as it bends in breezes of low blows and
continues to dance along a sway ….
or is it just listening ?

twenty toes

pair of shoes
finding socks that fit
oh so right

twenty toes
rock and roll
with pure delight

he helped her feel
safe, secure, warm, adventurous, alive ….
no matter what time of day or night,
when she smiled his world became sunshine

and to make it even twice as good,
these feelings were mutual

hangin’ out

there was this gang
just hangin’ out on the street corner,
south side of Chicago

did not mean no harm,
just hangin’ out

when trouble came along,
they dealt with it appropriately
and efficiently …. no big whoop,
just standard procedure

that gang is still hangin’ out
on that street corner ….

order in the court ….

so many verdicts,

jury was misled,
it was the judge
that was guilty.

lawyers laughed
as their pockets
sang jingle bells ….

witnesses puked
because truth was lied to

” order in the court “,
cried the hammer

one very astute listener proclaimed,
” i’ll take a bigger mac with no special sauce please …. ”

somewhere, a pickle has no bun.
