A Brilliant EleganceThe very beautiful lights twinkled mightily up above everyone's small shuttered
apartments. One window however, was open, allowing the dancing spirit-lights a
raptured audience. The girl-child wonderfully watched without succumbing to any
distraction, not even teasingly hot prickles. Aurora's were sighted sparingly so
every citizen, on other instances, held special holidays. But tonight everyone lay
fearful, wondering and waiting, impatient for swiftly approaching doom. Even
animals knew something terrible was amiss. However the girl-child, ignoring the
warnings, devoured the magic spectacle, eyes whirling galaxies of color.
An apple apparently, and accidentally, angled around an adjacent area.
Because, being bulbously brown, became bent, banging behind bread bringers.
Callously curious, cats cuffed, circling.
Despite dubious deliberations, dark dame demanded daringly, ducking during dusk.
Every evening eked eloquently, even evilly, encircling evanescence.
Foundling fond for fruit finds furry fripperies folly.
Gaping, grinding, gulping, gone.
Hollow heaven, healing hell - harmful harrying.
Indigestion inside, insidiously icky.
Journey's jubilation jaded, jeeringly judged.
Keening - kicking...knowing......knew.
The peelings of the wicker chair
are cold against my skin
and I'm sitting, just sitting…
Daddy's yelling agin'
The birds are all a chirpin'
the leaves are slick with dew
Inside Mama's screamin'
her face rising in hue
The breeze pinches my knuckles white
wrapped tight around my knees
The storm within is burning fast
they've thrown away the keys
The blows from their cold disregard
sting hot against my skin
yet I'm sitting, just sitting…
a fight no one can win
The rants and cries begin to cease
the conflict's winding down
To my surprise, they come outside
I'm-sorrys' paint the town
He picks me up, She hugs me tight
They're through, they've had their fill
But in my heart it's torn and worn
forever healing, still
E.E. and Me
Tee hee hee
Who needs E.E.
When I've got Lady
Such a wonderful pup
Are not dogs the best companions
For those such as I whose minds tend to wander away
Why, a canine companion could retrieve it wherever it goes
Much like Yahoo
Then again there are things to watch out for in the world-wide web
Things that can literally steal your life away
In more ways than one
These days one can sell it and buy it and break it
"If you break if you buy it" tee hee
"They're coming to take me away
Ho ho, he he, ha ha!"
Speaking of Christmas
Its coming up soon
Which one will it be?
The happy go-lucky jelly-belly rosey-posey ho-hoing (tee hee) "Santa Claus"
Who lives at the North Pole with magical elf slaves to do all the dirty work
With no Union to protect them?
Or will it be that child born in an animal trough filled with hay and who lived on the earth just like everyone else?
He wasn't protected by no Union neither.
Random thoughts t
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
