a bluebird flew into this cave
filled with vampire bats
just hanging around,
upside down

bluebird danced his way through the crowd
singing tunes upon notes of life but almost none
of the baseball bats responded,

just sort of hanging there ignoring this show
of uninhibited expression as if nothing was going on,
deadbeats still breathing but silent

one bat however began to lick her fangs
and belted out a whistle along ….
much to the chagrin of fellow gangster members
steadfast on maintaining their etched in stone
kind of ways

as fast as the bluebird was in,
he was out again
only this time with a new friend
salivating at the taste of freedom flight

a new gang was being born
and poised to grow ….

barefoot ….

there was this parade not a charade
marching down paradise boulevard
and one of the marchers asked me to join in ….

i asked, ” how do i begin ? ”

the marcher says,
” you gotta take that first step forward
to get moving and then after that it’s
full steam ahead …. ”

so i grabbed hold a train whistle and
let it blow stronger than the wind itself
while footprints became etched in candy coated concrete,

bare feet never tasted so damn good
especially in between the toes.

privately loud whispers ….

both whispered into
a harmonious scream,
” more, more,
please give me some more …. ”

no time for fake
or mere folklore
give and take
are part of the same team

he ain’t no pervert,
he is a fucking god
she ain’t no whore,
she is a fucking goddess

when lightning and thunder
get together,
they fuck ….

breakfast ….

leather jacket
made of love ….
bite proof

skeptics, jack asses,
ulcerated critics at large ….

skeeters put in a cereal bowl
to crunch upon

snap, crackle, pop

anybody got a tooth pick ?

autograph the sky ….

finding diamonds up above
can be tricky to see
until the sun sets
exposing truth
to all who believe

on a clear night
turn your eyes to the sky
that shines for your autograph

make heavens know
you live, you breathe now ….
here on this blue pearl

funny money ….

the clown sat down
with the business executive
and asked,
” what do you think art is all about ? ”

the executive replied,
” it’s all about the money. ”

the clown chuckled,
” ain’t that funny …. ”

ice skates ….

even when the world seems cold
and the ground is frozen,

we can put on a pair of skates
and carve our initials into it
with passion, love, and friendship ….

planet Earth

please let us all
try to make it
a fun and happy

for we dance together
as one ….
