Open to a, “trust fall,” but unsure of the catching hand,
Knowing that I must fall and hope for a safe place to land,
I will place my trust in you though not knowing if you’ll catch me,
But I’m falling anyway, though failing would dispatch me,
The depths of love unrequited wait to swallow me whole,
Unless above, we’re united by your arms that catch me as I fall,
But either way I’m falling...

Break yr own heart..
In a rush of silence, in a rush of violence.
Without apprehension, no comprehension.
Cognitive dissonance, dominance, homonyms, adjectives, selective placement
come up with schemes....
past traffic stops, run from the cops..
Darling I love yr earrings,
with a hint of shimmer and shine..

Only a Week
The microcosm of one week's events
stand out in all the events of history
A glimspe of a few days in time
echo their sounds to the present day
a rapturous welcome of a King
as joyful souls sing their praises
The same souls who within a week
shouted Crucify Him! Crucify Him!
Was such caprice so well condensed
so human as to mood and moment

Touron........A tourist who unfortunately also happens to be a moron!
The “Tourons” made up a picnic
of their favourite food and drink
They brought along everything from home
except the kitchen sink
Bags bursting with goodies
enough to see them through the day
They left behind the empty packaging
for others to throw away
Taking much effort to pack everything
their stomachs desired

tones of wooded sprouting leaves
sing the measure of the trees
they festive lift, and rustle, clap,
or silent sway, filled with sap
gorged and sated, a jewel they glow
the color of the sign to go
full of chlorophyll, the grass
screams of life as through stained-glass
filling up with greenhouse gas
while oxygen to us they pass
surrounding us with vital health

A vanishing life along these cobbled streets,
endless grey days of August in the Balkans
At heart my Orthodox soul grieves
for these long centuries of despair
and for all the bodies that were left there.
Landless, we were robbed by the Turks,
our churches smashed,
our daughters raped
our sons taken as Janniseries
to return to us as the sultan's savages...

a bad lady's fallen down,
I bend to tender succour,
lean, quite ravaged now,
she used to be a looker
rheumy eye meets mine
sees me for an old lover

beyond speech, staring,
I stroke her grimy hand,
crowd standing apart, a
motley but curious band
she tries to speak, but
uttering merely tears,

Lenny a three year old,was in distress,he'd swallowed a penny,
Fortunately this sort of thing doesn't happen to many.
To alleviate the little lad's fear,
Dad pretended to pull a penny from Lenny's ear
In a flash the penny was grabbed and swallowed by the lad,
Who delightfully demanded,"Do it again dad !"

When you left, my whole world came tumbling down
I became so lost
I was left in the dark

I learned to be strong to no longer rely on your love
You thought I was weak,
For feeling too much

Victims became 'lepers' to our shame.

People became defensive or often lie.

Victims coaxed to hide away in a shelł

Have we run out of road this time
Are we still living with lies
Or are these thoughts all in my mind
My hearts forever aching
I feel there’s love inside
But it’s hard to show emotions

So is this the end of the line
Or are we both just being blind
Do we just need to make time

Each one tired from their labours;
Here they will subsist as neighbours,
Friends, dispensing valued favours,

Framed within a simple deal window. The street below
Began to quieten. Stray comments wafted from the inn;

A parting salute along the cobbled roadway, her crimson
Painting its gaudy standards in fairground red. ...
