My last post for this week. I’ll be traveling over the next couple of days and in holiday mode, (like some of you.) I’ll still be reading and commenting (as time permits) I have to. I’m addicted to your words.

I’m grateful for everyone I have met through WordPress. The blogging community is so supportive and kind. It’s refreshing Thank you for your kindness.

Happy Thanksgiving!

And now a bit of poetry and some mind numbing pop music.


When the all of us fails.
We fall to making love.
We find lines in the stars
and pretend we are the
stuff of sonnets not
horror tales.

Let me loosen your
belt. Rip the buttons
off your shirt.
We’ll find oblivion
in warm flesh
and the hard surface
of the table edge.

Knowing soon our
city will be leveled.
Our rainbow undone.
The melancholy wind
exerting control over
this poem.

Living half our lives in
fantasy, We are our
own devastation.
Words the vocation.
Words that shed
our flesh. A common
love of the brutal.
A toxic faith in

For a moment, we
pay tribute to the
scripture of light,
to our appetites,
and the deep oasis
of moans and skin.
Our own chaos theory.

We spin the illusion
of love. We live off
the debris.
