Unleash your arrow dipped in space and time
And let it fly for twelve long months of time:

Rise and Shine

Like the rising sun
Drawing back night’s black curtain,
He makes all things new.

Rise on the wings of the dawn

Ethereal Dementia

The Blind Lion Roars

Leave turgid ways
Behind like fresh footprints
Zig-zagging haphazard sand maze
At beach bottleneck when miscreant brays,
“There’s a shark in the water, everyone run!”–then
Tear down your burlap Berlin wall replays,
Light the bright demarcation blaze,
Enter effervescence:
Perspective sways–
Lather, rinse,

Light of Life to Dark World Shining

O great is our God; sing choirs the same,
Who heals with His wing and gives us His name–
Extend invitations, oh send out the call:
This blessed salvation is given to all!

Fork it Over

Winside Inn

I ate
The bread you brought
With garlic, melted cheese,
Like mittens on a nippy day;
I’m glad.

I Still Insist So

Girl in a Snowstorm

Kids sledding with smiles
And adults shoveling say
This weather’s snow good!

Bruschetta is Better, but Liquor is Quicker

I don't usually talk

A little liquor liaison,
Some eggnog for the occasion–
Poor Joe drank all within his reach
And thus began his stab at speech:

Ecce Moneta

Live Like a Princess

Take your oil, your diamonds, and gold;
They’re shiny but come at great price.
The struggle for money is old:
Men would kill for one extra pice.


American Dream

A fever’s like a campfire on your face,
Sirocco blowing flames into your throat:
T-shirt and shorts, then blankets, sweats, and coat–
A Kafkaesque encaustic cosh embrace.

For Newtown


Nothing I say will unsplash the waters
Spilling from these wells,
Watering this hallowed ground,
Rippling in the aftershock
Of this torturous tragedy.
But I will still say I’m praying for you
And weeping:
Jesus wept.
