    On Bones or Tulips

    I prefer to drink,
    All alone and all night long,
    Slowly like a love letter kindled on the logs,
    Like a little girl on a swing set all alone, read more »

    In a back bedroom upstairs stands an antique armoire-
    a four by eight foot clothespress of dark Spanish maple-
    ornate cornice and frieze overhanging double doors,
    brass hinges and doorknobs gone verdigris, read more »

    some chicken

    Some chicken, Churchill said, some neck.
    It seemed that Britain’s had been wrung,

    Solo le sue lacrime dolci faceva gustare alla gente che la circondava. Soltanto sottovoce sapeva parlare quando voleva chiedere qualcosa. Qualcosa semplice di solito, una domanda da bambina. Persino le cose che noi altri le diciamo gridando, lei le diceva sottovoce come se parlasse a se stessa.

    E fu cosi anche quell'estate per una volta ancora. Neppure il suo 'grido' di aiuto nessuno ha mai udito su quelle spiagge addormentate che riposavano vuote e stanche dalle orme lasciate dai piccini vicino ai loro enormi castelli che il vento trasformava in sabbia e con se' li portava via lontano. read more »

    One Damn Good Friend

    Please don’t assume I don’t know, I’ve seen that look before

    Sesquipedalian (With Apologies To Ogden Nash)

    My poems are somewhat, in fact quite a lot, not to put too fine a point on it, just a bit or, notwithstanding everything else I will say, a great deal sesquipedalian;

    They are packed full, to wit, of long-winded words that don’t fit and ululating complicated and multi-syllabic, incomprehensible terms that feel almost alien. read more »

    Just to look at this angel is astounding,
    She gives me eternal shivers down my spine that shift down and give me cold feet, Her with a symmetrical spine, wings on both sides with a width far enough to make her fly beyond words,

    an out of this world, woman, making her field trip from heaven to us, then me, read more »

    Wasps In A Garden

    The wall-trees are laden with fruit;

    Rusty Confidences
