Homesick

July 10, 2016

Taking you in
my senses are attuned.
Sight, hearing, taste and smell
reacting,
when eager fingers
rip open the skin
of the ripe,
burgeoning,
orange,
tangerine
Heat trapped the smell of
diesel,
sea salt,
asphalt,
familiar spices,
the dry smoke from fields of burnt sugarcane.
Birds call...

The Ceiling

October 22, 2016

Woman
watch the glass.
It sees thee.
Climb.
Prepare,
be
armed
and ready.
We have toiled in the fields of commerce
deploying strategies,
assembling,
dissembling
attempting to upend
the status
quo.
NO.
We have planted our cause far and near
employing charm
sometimes conspiring
and disarm...

Past Perfect, Present Tense

September 9, 2017

All we have is our past.
It is what we know,
we can see what settled where,
after our storm
All we have is our recollection.
It is what we wondered about,
the when, where, who, what and why,
during the storm
The when, where, who, what and why
is the present
and
still unfolding

SEE SAY

August 31, 2019

SEE SAY
They say SEE something SAY something
WE SAW vigor
He FELT fervor
We SAW velocity
He FELT ferocity
If you did not SEE it before that day, you saw it then
08.26.2019.
that's when we all learned how it is played
multiple scores for the G.O.A.T.
and
he showed it

Miami Thrice

July 10, 2016

Ah, the 305.
The 786.954.754.561
The heat
The beat
The re-treat
Where visitors
and ‘gators
lounge around
basking,
and former generals,
presidents and dictators,
barons
and their ladies
chill.
They’re not here to shrill
Sometimes the hunters and the hunted
do a stare-down,
four eyes beh...

It Will Find You

July 21, 2017

We all want to know that there is a reason for our being
We search our minds at times in quiet solitude
We rise each day hoping that as certain as the dawn we will discover our purpose
It is written that all men are created equal on purpose
Keep looking
It will find you
From...

The night air jabs
knifelike against the face.
Feet plod purposefully
protected against the outside world
by thick socks and black thigh high boots.
Mosquitos bounce off the crisp black jacket
with only one layer of cotton sewn onto its skin.
No noise except boots
crushing sto...

Above The Fray

June 9, 2020

Above The Fray
There is the sense of lightly
skimming, barely putting your toe in
a dance on the froth
of the milk, floating
warm and light
giving ease to the mother cow
Legs stand firm on a board, then
taken aloft by the gust
that forcibly shrugged off
it's neighbors and shot...

Raw, Crude

April 26, 2019

Raw, Crude
Should I just go down as being raw, crude
liquid black, dark, chunky, rough hewn
In my (un)knowing
I am laced with the real gold they all want
24 Carat

Should I just go with the flow
forcefully rising, fat and fully frothing
(un)knowing where it will lead me
