Four chairs. One plate, One fork. Two chairs. One napkin, One partially filled glass. One chair. A microwave meat pie sat, Camping out across the table from him, ignored by the noisy, white conversation, of too many red lettered bills and junk mail. The TV sat just out of view, slightly out of frame, with […]
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.” He said with an excited tone. Sugary sweet it must be. The mind […]
Is It a Crime?
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 […]

Those people who say things, Cannot be done, Have never imagined, How it could be done. Those people lack, The lift of imagination, The starry eyes, And the dreams, To conceive thought, Give it birth, Nurture and raise it, to full blossom. But these people are not your people, You are not of their tribe, […]
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 […]
Jasmine in New Orleans
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 […]
