Drop the beat, the heat, slide the wisdom to the streets. DOOM the funk like unwashed feet or some ole skunk meat. The El Dorado, gold crease, please the teddy bear market with ease. Decease or desist. Drop it like it’s hot ’til the heartbeat cease. Roll up on it like Thought in a spaceship. […]

In the time between night and morning. In the delirium of the border country between awakening and near post sleep, a kiss dreamed can feel real. The whipped up, ephemeral body feels solid enough to elicit a reaction in those in-between hours. Sugary sweet it must be. The mind sees. The neck cranes. The lips […]

I made a robot on a hot Summer day. I wore my old Wisconsin shirt with athletic shorts to stay cool. But it was one of those particularly humid, Midwestern, hot Summer days. The kind where the heat just sticks to you; chasing you even into the shade. I assembled the legs, arms, and torso. […]

The day, sitting just over my shoulder, was a sunny and hot one. Fuzzy and out of focus, a background of greens, yellows, blues, and browns blotted the canvas.  The leaves, on a nearby bush, bobbed on the hot air, left to right – resisting the push, their necks genuflected involuntarily.

He’d been trying to muscle in on my business for a couple of months, upsetting my routine, the little fat-faced fucker. Leaving me threatening messages, warning me, that he was coming for me and sooner or later, he’d get what I so called owed him. Wasn’t my fault he was bad at math. Besides, betting […]

A slow evening. Watching the planes overhead, Break the deep purple, Break the zen. I became enthralled, By the things she said, “Hello, How are you?” So enraptured. A soul, so beautiful, Her heart, so gifted, My heart was, unknowingly, Captured. Even if it’s only a romance, Watching her smile, That’s all in my head. […]
