abstract homo sapiens


Summer Night Albert Bloch 1913

abstract homo sapiens

abstract “homo sapiens,”
weather-beaten, ice-burned,
exhausted warlords,
hands of pure water.

sunk in an alternate world
each reacts differently:
neurasthenia, irritation,
anger, rage;
paralyzing stagnant anemia.

beyond excitation they
gather with beaded moonbeams,
encrusted with precious stones,
filled with similarly colored fluids.

into the eyes of shameful friends,
sharing bondage, telling tales.
blueberry juice on their skin.
isolated from autumnal craftsmen —
an out-of-society culture.

Under Windsor Bridge Senryu


Under Windsor Bridge, 1912, by Adolphe Valette

Under Windsor Bridge Senryu

thinking in darkness
“presidential candidates?”
no hope for our future

foggy cityscape
impassioned meditation
intended hermitage

insufferable,
annoying, son of a bitch!
go jump off a bridge

four child with book senryu


four child with book senryu

sailing island-ward
tireless monsters await
where the wild things are

all the eggs have hatched
quaking and waddling road-ward
make way for duckling

man with yellow hat
curious monkey named George
unlimited fun

what words can you read
child with upside down book
living life forward

Olympic Torch Senryu


In the face of oppression the Olympic torch is carried through Britain alongside a Pit Bull. Maybe one day BSL will be lifted there and sights like this won’t be extraordinary.

Olympic Torch Senryu

shouting clear and loud
“eradicate B.S.L”
Our Olympic Torch

running with THE Torch
loving best friend at his side
limitless meanings

X is For (Xcor)

This week, I was fortunate enough to attend the Space Craft Technology Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

I went on a Press pass because I have a column on Nanotechnology now (see the right side of my page, there’s a link.) My column is writing poetry. XCOR had an interesting of their suborbital spacecraft. I want one. But you can buy a ride into orbit. Check out their website. It’s amazing that you can get into space now, and not be a superman astronaut. The spacecraft can be sued for payloads and experiments too, not just space travel. Seriously, check out their website, if you ever wanted to go into space, you can save up and go now!

five raindrop senryu


Raindrops

five raindrop senryu

father’s raindrop rule:
oil rises to the top
be extra careful

on desert highways
drivers don’t know what to do
daunted by raindrops

my spoiled canines
feel innocuous raindrops
scratch to come inside

unpredictable
raindrops mixed with snowy flakes
hybrid conditions

illustrator art
raindrops falling in my head
moving to next theme…
