04-25-15 Central Park Coyote Chase

On the prowl
Hunting you down
Hiding in the brush
Hot on our trail
Spotted trotting
In Lincoln Center
Taking a short cut
Faster than everyone
Evading police patrols
Strolling the streets
Moving on uptown

04-24-15 Alligator Stew For Breakfast

Yellow eyeballs organically blink
Floating green sea weed dream
Sharp teeth ripping flesh to shreds
Radioactive blood flows in the swamp

Swimming with gators
Down in the sewers
Under the subway
Eating pizza

04-23-15 Midtown Hustle

Golden skyscrapers
Growing up from the ground
Where we all run around
On top of the world

04-22-15 Lazy Morning Ritual

Early in the morning
I sit outside in the garden
Sipping my cup of coffee
Reading the newspaper
Watching birds hop around
Breathing cool fresh air
While orange sunshine
Warms my soul

04-21-15 The Swarm Before The Storm

All the bees are dying off
One by one under the sun
No more sweet honey nectar
But we need them for our survival

04-20-15 The Birds Are Watching

Ducks swim in the universe
Flocks of firebirds mock our every move
Snowbirds fly south for the winter
Pigeons are swarming everywhere

There's a falcon on our roof
And an eagle perched in it's nest
Across the woods up in trees
Flying free into the horizon

04-19-15 Next Generation Poets

Lay down your laser beams
Pick up your pens and notebooks
Join the band of fearless rebel troops
Figh for freedom in times of war
Set new fashion trends to impress
Collect the entire complete set
Read books from your library shelf
Turn the pages at the end of the day
Yellow paper so old and delicate
It smells like my Grandma's house
When the kids read the hot catalyst
Messages flow underground to crowds
Fresh voices of poetry speak aloud

04-18-15 The Path To Tranquility

Surrender to the sunshine
Sleep until noon on Tursday
Lazy days in the backyard
Sipping lemonade relaxed
Enjoy a good thing while it lasts

04-17-15 Astronaut Ice Cream

Strawberry cubes
Dehydrated sugar milk
Dry floating by

Space madness
Stuck inside the ship
Surrounded by aliens

We saw strange objects
Which could not be identified
Flying beneath the stars

04-16-15 Home Again At Last

The hand of grandeur
Delusions of the highest form
Only on empty alone together

Warm comforts of safety
Sleeping in a cold dark cave
Frozen in time while moving

Chicken and rice for dinner
Kung Fu fighting on television
Climbing the walls in the winter

Laughter and good health
Bad jokes talk turkey at the table
Family fights for the holidays

04-15-15 Light Hot Love Millenium Style

May the beauty of your heart
Shine a zillion times brighter
Than the lights in Times Square
On New Year's Rockin' Eve
At the turn of the century

04-14-15 Greetings From Zombie Town

Ghost wind
From the graveyard

Bitter chill
Bloody revenge

Remember my name
Never forget me

Kill in the darkness
Evil wins again

Stunned from beyond
Mystery whispers

Witch's wicked brew
Black magic medicine

Glowing red eyes
Fire blazing flames

Twist the hook
Spirits don't look back

04-13-15 Thirteen Ravens Rising

Frozen cold under a warm sun
Dark birds swarmed in slowly
Under the cover of sinister clouds
Black smoke rising above the city

The excruciating sting of death
Passes through life in a dance
Visiting late at night silently
Evil spirits haunt this location

The birds interpret the underworld
Voices from beyond this existence
Echoes calling out in endless cycles
Let your light shine again in the morning
