10-20-14 The Party We're Not Invited To

Happy to win
The taste of success
Best access to excess
For a dollar a pound

Posing with big problems
Covered up with a gold curtain
Traveling circus stories sold
Lost in a bottomless glass

Sports cars speed racing fast
Gardens growing green ghosts
Champagne bottles passed around
The sounds of ultimate extravagance

10-19-14 Hudson River Haiku

Underneath the bridge
Walking down by the river
Weekends with my Dad

10-18-14 Deep Inside A Bloody Mary

new rise
up on the mountain
top down
ready to fly

hot scream
downtown scam job
long drive
fast on the highway

ice cream
on a warm summer day
turn low
on which this all depends

road trip
thinking for a thousand miles
clear head
solving all the world's problems

10-17-14 Hot Chill Of Love's Peak Color

To live out loud
Then to be reborn

On the heels of hell
Fire on the moon

Facing suspension
Returning to the scene

Crime party fun show
Jumping into high gear

Crying on the sidewalk
Tears soak into the ground

Golden lions roaring free
The joy of being wild animals

Fake angels floating home
Kiss the breath of nature's smile

The rising sun brings warmth
A new day gives birth to a fresh start

10-16-14 Fly Away Into The Night



OUT      OF      TOWN

INSIDE      THE        PARK


               GONE GOODBYE

10-15-14 Very Special Guest Star

Isolated plastic creature feature
Proud to promise a good time
To play that same old tune again
Shooting stars burst like fireworks
Too young to fall in love dangerously
Glitz glamour zen game end spot
Opportunity depends on timing
Twisted snake designs spelled out
Let's make a secret handshake deal

10-14-14 Doomsday In The Afternoon

The bridge went down
Fires burning in the night
Put it into proper perspective
Buildings collapsed everywhere

Sorting through the rubble
When you least expect it
Disaster strikes hard
From out of nowhere

Massive flooding in rugged terrain
Swept away in the rushing waters
Tsunami hit when the coast was clear
Recovery will be a long road

10-13-14 It Was A Con Job

They never even noticed
An emergency landing
Because the hand is
Quicker than the eye

Thieves are always watching
There is always something
Waiting to be stolen blind
Robbed in broad daylight

10-12-14 Champions Of Midtown Swagger

Hawks over Central Park
Leaves changing vivid colors
A cold wind blows in strong
Sunshine blind this morning

Hot coffee cup steaming up
Club kids are still awake
Old men reading newspapers
A squirrel gathers nuts

People hustle on their way
The work day has begun
There is money to be made
New York City is the place

10-11-14 Sad Little Satellite

Split screen forecast
Plastic cup impression
Action figure articulation
Save the future generations

Seems like the world is on fire
Shapes in the skies exploding
Broken trust down below deck
A good commercial stash opened

The weekend is working out well
Education opens the door to opportunity
Magic awareness in the spirit for fall
Pumpkin leaves cooler temperatures

Floating around in the atmosphere
Heavy responsibilities living at large
Transmitting messages across space
Swimming along in the great universe

10-10-14 Blast Off

Routine countdown clock
Building up the tension
In breathless anticipation

Launching rocket number nine
Straight ahead to planet Venus
Crash landing into the cosmic void

10-09-14 Extraterrestrial Poem

A bright light
Shining up
Above the hill

It was a light
That was brighter
Than life

Beings visiting
From some other place
Or an alternate universe
With a sinister agenda

The ship was giant
With smooth rounded edges
It seemed to be constructed
From a weightless metal

It looked me in the eyes
With its own large round eyes
And it read my mind from inside
Then it looked into my soul

10-08-14 Fool Me Twice

When you broke my heart
For the very first time
I forgave you

Now you've broken my heart
But this time I don't care
