Fingers snap, hands clap, the melody wanders into the room. Heart rush, guitar crush, hidden in the corner with whom? Pecan brushed lover, set against a faint gray sofa, faint gray walls. From over, near the door, to the middle of the floor, the melody crawls. With spider web vibrations, on a line to my […]

Bordello Blues.  Her stiletto heeled strut, leaning from side to side as she approached center stage.  Twisting and gyrating, her body going through the motions.  Viewing the distance in her eyes, it was easy to tell that her thoughts were far, far away tonight. Hounded applause gripped the stage with sweaty hands and folded currency—all […]

Selena passed them on the way into the place.  A gorgeous distraction, black leather and lace, bottom bass, from right to left, left to right, like MJ always surpassing the hype.  She tossed ’em a sly smile, followed by her fly style.  Nothing but raised eyebrows and Ooohh faces.  My ace up the sleeve, scent […]

A star packed sky dots the scene, Hand in hand, a quixotic dream, Jumping out of a Friday night, And onto the movie screen. Speed it up, slow it down. We glide across the shoreline. We out race the light, We love in never ending night! For It was written across the heavens, In the […]

Moonlight travels, The shadows, Draw to a close. Ceiling fan whirs, The restless stir, Resisting repose. I blend into, Merge into, Bring heat to the dark. The sheen on a Moreno hue, Resisting dissolution, Into the fading light, Holding you tight, Into the late hours, Into the maturity of the night. The magic in your […]

Like attentions fixed upon Winter, Floating to the ground. Creeping madness imagining snows melt, Cooling the brow. Found floating in the sharing of thought, Finding like rest in burial sought. Cupping handfuls, Bathing in the abstraction for hours. The nuanced intentions, Sesame the arms of flowers. Toe touching head, A still of curved form. Flipping […]

When I get old there’s gonna be a lot of shit that I’m gonna just stop caring about.  There’s so much wasted time, I could prolly free up and put to better use.  I’ve already identified quite a few things and listed them out. Hmmm.  Might not be a bad idea to get a head […]

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, 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 reach […]

The candle lit, the flame dances atop the wick, dancing between the winds, pushed between pursed lips.  The arcane spoken word, the sunshine, bringing life to those without it.  The twist, thirsty and peckish for more like a deep pull, but settling for just a sip. On October the 12th, I climbed into my mind […]

And If there is a God somewhere way up high, Way beyond the sky, I will one day be free, Be free to just be, Feeling good, grinnin’ into the breeze, Escaping the mental trap house, Running free through the night air, Only then slightly aware, Of the fear spliced into, programmed into me. Til then, […]
