    I think (roll of drums) that you're a real poet, Sean, who writes the occasional lousy line don't we all. So please take your talent seriously - but go on writing fun poems along with the serious ones? Best wishes.

Tread Water For Her

I've got what you want
you told me to bring it
this box here for you
our ship's cargo
salvaged after wreckage
reminders of a voyage
a trip to Key Largo

What a grand time we'd had
up until that fateful day
the reef hit so suddenly
knocked us out for a moment
things would never be the same

Me, the nautical novice
You, with eyes like the ocean
Us, on a wayward rendezvous
To truly live is to drown in you

Revealed, I've now died
that I can accept
a treasure now kept safe
forever to you it is tied

Read the full of Tread Water For Her

Risky Business

I don't take negative or unexpected consequences very well
I've gotta think things through or spend life in hell
An unruly life I do not desire
for all my plans I've made for so long
might unravel after one backfire

This game of risk is not unlike that of world conquest
The process of both can leave a person quite stressed
Move this army here, move that army there
