Astronauts were packing it in.
Wrapping up a long mission
when the ships sensors had a vision.
Beyond the hill of ice.
On a planet deemed to have no life.
A sign of life before them
beyond the hill were penguins.
Sliding down the peak
with Popsicles in their beaks.
A bundle over polar bears
sat watching in folding chairs
on the planet of Coldairus.

Cal slipped his noggin underneath his bedsheets. He remained quiet and still, hoping that what he had just seen in the corner of his room was an optical illusion. Just now, he’d seen a dark figure looming over his toy chest near the open closet. Surely it was there, he thought. A tall figure hovering in the dark and in the blink of an eye it was gone. As he lay still for a moment, he gathered the ...

A snowflake hits the moonlit pond
freezing grounds before the dawn.
The pond will ice from shore to center.
Frozen puddle, solidified by winter.
Daylight comes, the children rejoice
over hockey games on the pond of ice.
Thursday 28th December 2023 7:53 pm
Coconut oil suntan lotion
slathered on my skin.
Motion of the raging ocean
a fire brews within.
Adirondack on the boat deck
letting the sunbeams in.
My note to you
in a closed glass tube
I sent it for a swim.
The day you find the note I wrote
will surely be my end.

How many planes are on cocaine?
The pilot shoots powder into his brain
This private charter is fucking insane
My pilot parties like Jeff Tremaine
Our landing abrupt, we stopped in a lake
The pilot was dead, I was in shakes
The cops combed the scene
Didn’t find anything
The coke on the pilot
was washed by the stream
He laid there cracked open
Thursday 16th November 2023 12:24 am
Tick tock the cats tail
swings from the steel nail.
Kitten nailed to the wall
tightly secured, as not to fall.
Eyes open wide
digitally displaying the time.
Thursday 9th November 2023 7:56 pm
As I watch the news I see a similar trend.
Many mass-shooters with one common thread.
Felt shunned by their peers
for many a year.
So, if you are kind
you surely will find
a life filled with many friends.
Wednesday 8th November 2023 7:13 pm
Sadie the aquafox leaps from the lake
giving its body a shake
A boy throws a ball
the aquafox takes chase
The ball lands behind the shed
aquafox stretches its legs
across the bright green lawn
Zigging and zagging to fetch
Wednesday 8th November 2023 2:10 am
running from your brown nose
looked down on in the mirror
undeserving of a turn
to be clearly heard
Thursday 2nd November 2023 2:54 am
Roll the dice for me tonight
Lucky charm of the sky
Burning light-years high
Out of reach
Of my motorbike
Cruising under citylight
Sunday 29th October 2023 10:01 pm
Viscous heat bubbles at my feet.
A drum of boiling oil lies beneath.
My body sweats
I dangle like a leaf.
From a wrought iron cage
I watch with rage.
They chop my friends.
Then, they soak and bread them
Feed them to the grease.
I'm a bird trapped in the tree.
Never to be free.
Until, it's time to eat.
Tuesday 24th October 2023 6:17 pm
a golden relic of prior days
they tell tales of djinns and genies
how did this object receive the name
it'd make an ideal canteen of gravy
my room does not illuminate
I've rubbed till wrist was cramped
when filled with oil, the blaze did rage
why do they call it a lamp
Monday 23rd October 2023 5:39 am
soldiers take the field
foam swords and shields
Costume City troops
dressed in batman suits
they paused for lunch at noon
the battle to resume
when a glass of tea
and one grilled cheese
are happily consumed
Monday 23rd October 2023 5:36 am
beyond sunsets of tangerine
past seas of aquamarine
crimson pouring out of me
I face my final color scheme
Thursday 19th October 2023 4:36 am
Sunday 15th October 2023 9:22 pm
make a corpse, make a scene
make 'em scream, make 'em sing
as you funnel the chlorine
down the hatch on Halloween
make a movie, make a scene
may they flock to the screen
watch the torture and abuse
hang a man by their own shoes
solid noose of double shoestrings
coming to theaters, this Halloween
Sunday 15th October 2023 1:30 am
how embarrassing it is
to be from a planet
that created artificial intelligence
not because it was hard
but, because we're too stupid to think for ourselves.
Friday 13th October 2023 10:02 pm
Two dark fluffy eyes
enormous in size
made of clouds in the sky
stare back at me
Straight above me
an ocean so lovely
dense and fluffy
Friday 13th October 2023 9:31 pm
passionate generals boom their blasphemies;
aim thy cannons at our godless enemies
burn their homes, set fire to the trees
kill every last living thing
start with all the "human beings"
kill every doe, bird and bee that breathe
breeding in the miasma stream
in their demonic energy
fear not, for
heavy is the hand god feeds
waifers and wine
defenders of the make be...

I pray every one of their children is gay.
Lord, make it so.
I pray one of their sons
murders them in cold blood,
while the rest of their kids cover it up.
Maybe I've spent too long
not focusing on the problem.
Lord, make me ungay.
I want to be taken seriously,
get off this disability.
publish poetry in Braille,
and give all my earnings to charity.
If I promise to pray for your sake,
Thursday 12th October 2023 1:47 am
burning in the corner of the restaurant.
every key on my laptop.
QWERTY keys with a yellow gunk.
teeth like licky licky lollipop.
Comatose, you fill my nose.
Fill my mouth
with fizzy fizzy sodapop.
My breathing stops.
It's no trouble,
I'll just bubble
for these TV docs.
Googling 5 bed cabins
on the mountaintops.
I tell you of my ailments.
Thursday 12th October 2023 1:42 am
the tempting bite
glossy wax mushroom
two hours after consuming
your body is still buzzing and booming
feet are cruising, not stumbling
head is alert, mellow and bubbly
you're at your parents house
sitting cozy on the couch
President Nixon turns and whispers
did you know the moon landing was motion pictures
eyes sweep left to right
breaking out in hives
that wax w...

charred scents linger
within the astronaut's mind
suits, boots, glove fingers
leave scent memories behind
reek of burnt toast and sulfur
a vacuum occupied by scientists and engineers
what Earthly scents trigger
the olfactory bulbs of space pioneers
acid burns, fireworks, the scent of torched meat
the bakery that burns a rack of bagels
on the putrid corner of smelly Smogstone Street
Tuesday 10th October 2023 1:45 am
Salvia on the tongue,
mind a fuzzy buzz.
Brick wall opens before me.
By firelight I see through.
On the back porch age 17
Saturday 7th October 2023 4:16 am
Wild rattlesnakes wrestle with their shakes.
Slithering through the decay,
of a rusted red Chevrolet.
Roaches top the food chain.
Gargantuan size and strength
with razor fangs.
Everything turned prey.
You told me you want to die
in another time and place.
When and where the starlight
still shined through space.
Friday 6th October 2023 7:14 pm
You have a phone meeting at noon,
address the issue head-on and soon.
Lobbyists are clawing at the doors.
I set up a press conference at four.
Jerry wrote you a speech
he typed it with his feet.
Suppose, he would have used his hands.
But, they were amputated per your demand.
Wednesday 4th October 2023 5:50 am
Derek plummets from the summit
paper feathers attached
fashioned wings upon his back.
Lift him high through the clouds
gently swaying to the ground.
Each trip up the cliff
is a daunting grind.
Daily, Derek makes the climb.
The woods reveal a blissful calm.
But, nothing beats his daily fall.
Tuesday 3rd October 2023 1:19 am
Lawn mowers blast Arcadian cacophony.
I flick a mosquito off of me.
Sitting on my front porch step
nails painted in bright red.
Turning all the pages
of my science fiction.
Working on a suntan.
From dome to collarbone.
Cropped top and a houndstooth skirt.
Subjects, objects, and verbs
come and go
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:35 pm
summer brings slurries
wicked sticky sleet drops
puddling, pooling, icicles dripping
slush gushes from the frosted rooftops
winter heat fries the egg
cracked on rocky road
melting the cream
burning the orange cone
Melbourne Falls, darkness dawns
sixty days of night
madness in the streets
kingdom of crime
Tamura Springs, sky rains cancer
the sakura flower lost
our beautiful reminder
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:32 pm
abandoned and left for dead
hundred and seven degree day
heat fueled the thirst, then the darkness came
bringing a chill to the plane
stratus clouds hovered knee high
a glowing glass bottle in sight
flowing with liquid vitamins and energy
only the dying would consume that gasoline
last drop of gas hits the tongue
bottled up stratus bits to take back home
no place to go, but grade A die...
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:30 pm
blood seeps thick to the roots
burst back out the bamboo shoots
oozing across the earth
sullying the dirt
we drench the world in blood
name of a toxic gov
fighting for a stretch of land
soldiers march on scarlet sand
they're soaked in the crimson red
mist of men, registered dead
plasma dripping down the mountain
running like a fountain
platelets burst from the peak
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:29 pm
Lawn clippings left in my mouth
Finest cheese weed
Couldn't produce a lick of saliva
buzzing from the sativa
August 12, 2023
Somewhere in Michigan that night
Under the stars
Local highway, I heard the cars
Crickets chirping bars
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:27 pm
Dip in the driveway,
the water puddles and pools.
Huddled against my front door
I breathe in my smoke.
August 14th, 2023.
Exhaling through my nose
the tobacco that I chose,
Fat Bottom Betty.
Drew estates, Nicaraguan robusto,
choice of the aficionado.
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:24 pm
Been called a jabroni
for lighting a stogie.
Inhaling the relief,
exhaling my grief.
Dawn, August 13, 2023.
On my stoop I sit breathing
the aroma of the leaf.
Smoke caresses my cheek.
I inhale the thick smog,
my lungs give a cough.
Enjoy the taste of the leaf.
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:22 pm
perched upon the table
made of oak and maple
stones carved of cedar and sycamore
is grandpa’s checkerboard
when mom and dad play rummy
the children squat down on the floor
checkers begin jumping
on that old checkerboard
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:20 pm
mechanical horses line up at the gate
riders clad in straps of leather
contemplating their fate
Akira Koike takes up pole position
favored to win
his prized stallion fitted with
an atomic booster engine
the steed is comprised of HSLA steel
welded shut from muzzle to heel
the chariot attached is made of chromed magnesium
lightweight and strong with rivets of ...

gravity takes ahold of his body and shadow
talons, pinning his shade by the nape
on a cold night, dim lit stretch of pavement
underneath a flickering street light
wings, carrying his body and stretching his shade
rising through the stratosphere
rubber banding under the pressure
as gravity takes him to the peak
talons, slipping, falling from gravity’s feet
he shot back to...
Monday 2nd October 2023 8:00 pm
lava oozes down the peak
the sweat and heat, my body quivers
glowing golden, burning streams
blazing, globbing, gobbling flames
hungry molten rivers
devouring all in their wake
touched by iron, turn to fire,
oobleck that incinerates
burn to ash, all they pass
hungry molten rivers
warming, cooling, terraforming
hot rock forms the coast
Monday 2nd October 2023 7:54 pm
a bear with the antlers of an elk
slumbers on glacier ice
swimming in the arctic
cranks up the phonograph
blares heavy metal music
for the heavy metal riffs
the bear wakes up at sunrise
paws a bundle of fish
elk-horn bear dances
dances the Earth apart
the glaciers fall into the water
causing the tides to surge
