The Sun’s light shown through the windows and doors of the all white room.  The all white curtains stood sentry at the windows, motionless and at attention.  She sat at the piano between two, all white columns. Her wrists, in staccato movements, struck the keys with angled elbows, while her fingers, deliciously, devoured each note. […]

They said, “The peace couldn’t last for too long.”  You could hear the acrid breeze moving through the leaves.  You could see the diseased air stripping the trees. My daughter asked, “Daddy, what does it mean?”  I answered, “Things are about to become scary.  So be wary of the character of strangers you meet.”  Roll […]

Come and get me / I’m ready soft and sweet, me / I’m candy come and get me…/ Hey Baby, come on / Hey Baby, come on / Hey baby now… Come and get me / I’m ready you’ve been patient / I’m tasty come and get me / Hey Baby, come on  / Hey Baby, come on / Hey […]

I can remember one day – I was passing by this old dude.  He asked me to go to the store for him.   He told me he’d give me a couple of dollars.  I hollered back, “Nah, man.  I gotta be somewhere.  I don’t have time.”  I didn’t even look at him. I only slightly […]

The cool air of the summer night makes its way through the open window. The city lights in the distance catch his gaze. Holding it for a few more seconds, he tugs at his necktie, leaving it to loosely hang. The nearest light fell across the dark hue of his skin, bringing shadow to his […]

I made a robot on a hot Summer day.  I was wearing 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 […]

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 […]

“Watch it!” “Hey man!” “What the fuck!” I ran into the crowd, in the hopes I could lose it there.  I watched as it dove in after me. It slithered it’s way through, pulling the bulk of itself forward.  My face and hands bounced off jackets and shoulders as I frantically pushed my way through the […]

Crane your neck outward. Turn your face skyward. Lift your head above the trees. Breath in that purple sky And the cool nighttime breeze.   Let your eyes shine the light across the tree tops. It’s coming. It’s coming… From the moment the first beat drops.   The Muse grabs me, Holds me, Restraining my […]

Close your eyes and imagine me. See my spoken words with your aggressive flirt. Keeping pace with my rhythm, Just imagine me. Let my song sing to your soul So deep under the rhythmic caresses, Moving across the surface. Tasting the salty sweetness of your arch. Just close your eyes. Imagine the squint in the […]

Shorty’s the illest on the block, metaphorical pipe game, taught me life game, mind locked, attracted to the words coming out of the speakers, the notes and bars flocked, sparked the flame. Looking both ways before she crossed my mind.  The danger was inherent in the way she dropped her lines.   Rhymes always crispy, […]

I rolled up in it Stepped out of it Sipped dopamine from it Popped my collar to it Caught a glance or two Because of it Been defined by it Been paranoid And Filled with pride All attributed to it I’ve lied about it Been covered in it Sometimes rejected it Then embraced it Pumped […]

Keeping things simple, I’ve come to the conclusion there are 3 types of people in life.  Those who understand the system and seek to take advantage of it, seek to game it, for personal gain.   Those who understand the system, but reject it’s inequality and injustice for Others.  And those who are oblivious to […]

The methodical movements of windshield wipers pace back and forth across a gray and overcast sky. Steam escapes the charcoal of industrial chimneys, dissipating under the assault of the rain, while I traverse the ley lines of the bridge. The rumble creates a veil of solitude within this personal eye to mask the listening traveler […]
