Not in their head for sure, e'en
not in their toes to twiddle,
line-breaks perchance a given,
as form, for those that quiddle;
the genius of rhyme is hidden
by poets who work the middle!


Can I ask to be shown the light
What of poets who do not write?

What of poets who do not write?

In the countries there are people crying, what have you lost?
A father holds his dying daughter, "why can't you
Save me father."

Water drips, in the high slide mountains, where mountain
Instruments breathe and fly with vapor.
Unheard blood inside blood tapers. There are caves
Without stories. On the wordless sky a child defines life, imagined.

The ocean is alive, moving, crying. Will we understand the
Intricate language of each wave. Mother moves and lives,
It's all poetry. The desk is, the memory weights, silent poetry paramour.
There is a way to tune in, more than breathe in listen.
A mute to it's tongue. Eyes wake, thoughts felt.
you are poetry

For all
its florid fulminations,
this riot of emotions
that push and shove;
for its commitments,
its procrastinations,
my favourite would
have to be love....


If three x three made twentynine,

I don't know who he might be,
but his grammar sucks, as you can see.
He cannot tell front from back.
Ask for a pail, he'll give you a sack.
Neither future, past, or now
can make a rooster into a cow.
Poke those numbers. That's just fine,
but you'll never please a porcupine.


The queston is: Who'd want to?

Hey Curious Georgina Cat,
Keep your misery, don't fuck with me.
I am not afraid, Now and future, you envy in past
And sloth aloof admirations, closed ears, closed mind.
Hey some people are content with rewind, twine wasting
Time. Don't give me your negative energy, just hush.

I hope know you who you are and not are is in denial anymore, ya you.
What of porcupine grammar? I have three of my own languages,
That was supposed to be funny. Grammar is less than a tool,

Wrap it up in it's little box. Who did ya want to.
I rotate in 360 degrees, see me spinning, front that back.
Slowly. Gardens, not sacks, a human, a real man.
I'm here to stay, just be, positive & real.
Love God, give love, and feel love.

I love my life, I am not afraid. I am an artist,
More than inspired will ever be,
I keep typing, deeper in my groove of all-now.

What is your favorite natural phenomenon? :D

Since it makes your body shiver,
lips tremble, the soul's in spasm;
digits curl, as each limb aquiver,
only natural that you'd orgasm.


There have been fifty and this one,
Are you sure you're having fun?

Ain't nothin' more fun than rhymin'.
Gives me practice with my timin'.
Chase her 'round. You'll never get 'er.
Y'all be good, but I be better.
I can't help it. I must confess.
I loves my own rhymin' best.

The question is: What will you give me if I stand on my head?

"What will you give me...."

In that position (it ain't 69)
when your bottom's tops
and the front behind;
below the scallops
and rising hemline,
all you get
is a piece of my mind!

You might find this a little tough,
but really, are you getting enough?

"Are you getting enough?" you ask.
Of what, this little rhyming task?
I'll never tire. I'll rhyme 'til blue.
I'll rhyme 'til I make hash of you.


The question is: What wine goes well with hash?

Which Wine

Pours of Heavy thick red ride with splashes.
Pinot merlot, can I stop here,
O yes, it keeps going.
"I don't want the taste to leaf."

More some more. Stop unfaced, still taste,
Pallet fusion nose memory. A little shiver stir
From before. New now. New now.

We,
Sit in a circle, waking hash with dessert dinner splash,
Port me.

What use have I of lemons, of lime?
Few friends I have, a verse to rhyme,
No conflict, no twist; and in this time
of Depression, well past ones prime
there's nothing I find more sublime!


We're doing very well, but hey look,
can we put this together into a book?

I drive home and listen to my thoughts play with music,
The sky changes from light to dark blue. You can see it.

Endorphins are the word used to explain the high I flick,
Yet there are not words to explain the inevitable freestyle views of life,
There is understanding, there is influence, there is belief.
There are matters of the heart, matters of metaphor,
Matter without matter. Do you want to be immortal because of
What you loved? Ahh, Steps closer, a smile tingles and wrinkles, it worked, because of
The honesty in freestyle. Moments life when they remember.
Without fear, we continue the revolution.
Yet in fear we stop, we take the road taken.
I kiss the flaws, caress the shortcomings and feel the love that kisses without touch.

I turn off the engine, and know that I will never forget that
This freestyle never stopped its page spin, the book will happen.

What is stopping you from being what you want to be?

I'd be Popeye the sailor man.
I would if I could, but I can't.
I don't like the ocean;
its up-and-down motion
makes me Wimpy. I prefer land.


The question is: Have you heard the mountains cry?
