Poem – Love, Loss, Carry On

Love, Loss, Carry On   flighting bites silly sounds do delight frightful flights someone please dim the lights bug splattered windshield and too much glare straining to see what was really there distorted synaptic configurations convoluted emotions swirl I saw her as a young girl Tortured, pulled, torn, abused a rag doll stretched on a…

SCHMCOTUS – What It Means and Why I Need This Word

  I need to re-Define the word  SCHMCOTUS. But first, why do I need such a word? Necessity inspires me, hence the saying, necessity is the Mother of invention. It is a Mother alright. Ignoramus became insufficient as a descriptor to alleviate my feeling incredulous at the enormous credulous population who are his supporters. People…

Poem – Breath of God

What does the breath of God look like? Breath of God Vapors, on a cold wintry night When breath is seen Invisible made visible Momentary clouds materialize Only to dissolve Vapors, that float and move, towards, away from. Away from the mouth of God. Towards the one chosen. That is how a feather moves. On…

Poem – Sunset Surprise

This is a Haiku triplet. It came from an unusual evening. The sunset was supreme. It was a symphony. The sunset in the west was spectacular, a mysterious haze all aglow and ablaze as low clouds descended to the ground and there was a shroud of vapor swirling. It was sprinkling and showering rain drops…

Roe v. Wade

Roe v. Wade…So as I’m standing here thinking about this post which only my friend Marcia commented on, I’m thinking how would I feel if someone told me I couldn’t have a vasectomy. Because if I had a vasectomy I might be preventing the birth of a child that wasn’t born yet. Okay it’s not…
