So… there is MUCH to report. But I will start with THIS.
Great people who even let me co-edit and technical-assist! Check out the rest of the online litmag, too. They accept submissions twice a year – springtime and fall.
I’ve closed comments here. Click on over and comment there.
I lived where you live
I spit right where you eat
Right where you’re sitting
Under the soles of your feet
Did I leave an echo
A residual murmur
A spectral shift
Of what I once was…
Is there a whisper in the night
Of desperation I felt
From the time that he was
And I shed all my rights
All of my goods
Like a molting of all that was pure
When he lured me out into dead of night
I shed my innocence
Where you find your keys
Where he knocked on my window
Where panicked pre-dawn 911-calls
Fell on unexpectedly hesitant ears
And they sent no one
They sent me no one
Until after I vandalized this room with screams
And thereafter it was filled with sorrow
Is there resonance of my guilt there?
Is the ghost of my father still where I left him?

You’ll notice I’ve been slacking on my April PAD-Challenge posts. Ok, so I’m not slacking off on just posting for this challenge; I’m completely slacking on completing it. At least I’ve done several poems this month. Which is definitely more than I’d have done without said challenge… Continue reading
…it’s good a day as any to do some catching up.
For utterly selfish reasons, I did 4 poems to catch up today on the Poetic Asides PAD 2015 Challenge. It’s selfish because it was my “fix” (ha ha – get it? It’s “4/20”! You get a fix! And YOU GET A FIX!! AND YOU GET A FIX!!!). It’s also selfish and kind of fucked up because I did it all at work. And maybe it’s also just useful because it keeps me from thinking about how seriously low I’m running on fucks to give about anything at work…
Enjoy your “fix”. I sure as fuck did! Continue reading
So it appears I’m skipping. If you were hoping to see consecutive posts starting on Day 1 and ending on Day 30, good luck with that. I spend my days breaking a shit-ton of rules so why would I start following them now? I will freely admit to being a tad lazy. And commitment-phobic; so… 😛 Continue reading
I am lagging WAYYYyyyyy behind on this, peeps. It hasn’t been a super-fun few weeks; or months; or years depending how long or how well you know me… More on that at a later date. Continue reading
Day 2 challenge – Secret. I am a day behind but this one is short & sweet; like its author. 😉
IN THE BACKGROUND (haiku)
It sits there, silent
Peppering many conflicts
Until it bursts out loudly
So we’re OFF! Sprinting towards a goal of creativity, camaraderie and blessed structure with fellow poets of all shapes, sizes and colors (oh, you just KNOW you’re all colorful!). Continue reading
A blinding fog of thick melancholy surrounds
Frozen talons of the tall forest looming
Leaning in and over to claw and clutch
This mechanical trap that rides the tar ribbon Continue reading
