“Tomorrow Never Ends”

A butcher, a baker, a candlestick maker

Do you suppose they lay out their clothes for the next day?

Seems to teeter between confidence and hope

Somewhere slight on the middle of either end

Almost imperceptible

But, as prepared as a new day could expect one to be

I sometimes get around to wondering how many people never awaken to dress in laid out clothes

“Tease Nap”

Tease nap…

Where you at?


The rest of.

Quiet place,

Hat on face.

A clandestine siesta.

As quick to fall,

Awake enthralled.

Not sure of century,

Or location.

Dried saliva,

Snooze expired.

Waking so exact.

Not a chance,

To expand.

It was just a tease nap.

Been trying to play,

But it’s been glitching.

Scratch my gamer’s,

False convictions.

Busted controller,

Demands contrition.


Headphones high,

Track lights low.

Reset game,

Because it froze.

Gamers from not long ago,

Blow cartridges, Nintendo.

Sonic, Zelda, Mario.


Sixty-four byte,

Point of view.

PC, Mac, XBox too.

Switch the Station,

Or Play?

GameCon is here in May


Playing for ten hours straight.

Leroy Jenkins changed our fate.

Gamers, game on.


But, it’s still glitching,


Testing gamer’s false convictions.

“The Delight Of An Evening Park”


Skeeters abuzz

Ambient activity


Off again

The day’s festivity


To childhood’s

Primal proclivity…

To make each day last as long as possible

“Train Crush”

She was attractive in an unconventional way.

I surprised myself by realizing it was all I needed.


Big boned magnificent.

Exuding softness.

And, depth.

Reading an important book.

Curiosity ran roughshod through my veins.

The gravity she contained pulled me past being a conscionable being.

I channeled the gumption to open my mouth.

Before I uttered a word,

She said, “Hi.”
