gainfully employed


Global Unemployment

gainfully employed

lose employment
another degree
certifications
up the ying-yang

your platform
a catchy pitch
shiny resume
beefed up CV

contemporary economics
praise the few
sustainably styled
scrappy spirited

limelight, pride
shining star
your life’s
a rambling poem

senryu of blues and honesty


Giant Blue Spider on Cobweb

senryu of blues and honesty

i sing my own blues
i walk in people’s stories
their honest passion

grey clouds through blue sky
moving rapidly today
winds, variable

the world-wide cobweb
in my uncomfortable brain
can’t banish the blues

giant blue spider
also seeks some honesty
acceptance and love

anything but


This is the damage a hoarder can do

anything but

to hoarders, addicts and all those mentally dysfunctional people who have the right to systematically destroy everyone else’s life around them yet no one has the no right to stop them until, maybe, after the havoc and destruction is committed

refuse, feces
peanut butter, noodles
tear drenched pillow
physical contact

moldy dishes
cracker crumbs
fly paper
straight up Vodka

copy machine panel
kibble bags
loose carpet fiber
entitlement check

gastric volcano
intestinal flat worms
cerebral hornets
obligations to be met

radiation rampage


NASA – Goddard – Solar Dynamics Observatory Records Solar Flares

radiation rampage

fluctuating flight
magnetic motion
mercurial mantle
faux fizzing fluxes

flares forced further
through tortured
traumatic tension
flowing flexibility

roiling ribbons
corrugated cycles
capricious cannonade
radiation rampage

Shrill Limerick


Paul Stanley of Kiss

Shrill Limerick

a rock band was terribly shrill
providing their fans a big thrill
the lead guitarist was drowned
by a strange distorted sound
they were using a stanley hand drill

exciting haiku/senryu


Soaring with the Eagles

exciting haiku/senryu

most exciting day
birds float in warm spring breezes
hoping they can mate

angry and happy
multi-excitable state
constant turbulence

constant excitement
easily agitated
living together

Children in Their Natural Wild State

three cultural revolutionary tanka

highest dimensions
souls reawakened
flourishing forces
veil between worlds uplifted
revolutionary wave

insurgent powers
on catastrophic courses
charge into the fray
take advantage of the weak
holding only humble hope

sensory rebirth
down to earth metaphysics
new world envisioned
cultural independence
streaming literary works

withered wanderer


Ella's Garden

withered wanderer

withered wanderer
traversing
interwoven seasons
nourishing summer rain
sipped off
rarest petals
scattered colors
of autumnal equinox
coolness gathers
whitecapped rapids
fleeting blossoms
live without tenacity

depth of field


depth of field

years
out of focus
oozing
singular causes
journies
stricken
from memory
keen vision
lost
life lacks
depth of field
