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 while 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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

The day, sitting just over my shoulder, was a particularly, hot and sunny one. It was not a day to go unnoticed. Fuzzy and out of focus, the day’s canvas painted itself with the blotting of greens, yellows, blues, and browns. The leaves, on a nearby bush, bobbed on the hot air, resisting the push […]

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. […]

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. Running free through the night air,Escaping the mental trap house Blue eyes and fair,The deception laid bare,The fog parted,Breathing in rarefied air. Only then slightly aware… Of the fear spliced […]

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 […]
