There was a man who peed on the Alamo

There was a man who peed on the Alamo,

And his name wasn't Michelangelo;

He went to jail for a year and a half

To serve his time for this urinating gaffe,

This man who pee peed on the Alamo.

thoughts before a full eclipse of a red blood moon


lambent light listens to the lilting darkness

loquacious lark & vivacious viper sleep some more

before the dawn.

There was a man who lived in Kabul

There was a man who lived in Kabul,

Who had a most beautiful bauble;

He married a lady with a lot of sheep,

But they baaed and baaed so much he couldn't sleep,

So he split from his wife and took his bauble.

For SaRaHi

There was a hungry seagull

Who wanted a big bagel,

And she flew over mountains and seas---

But all she found was some cheddar cheese!

This hungry seagull who just wanted a big bagel.

Tribute to Sylvia Plath.
The words are Sylvia Plath's.

stasis in darkness
in nets of the infinite
pure as a baby

I am a pirate on the high seas of poesy.
All of the following words are not mine, but from poems by Sylvia Plath, and this haiku---and hopefully future ones...using her words---will be a tribute to her creativity.

a forest of frost
in a dawn of cornflowers...
tapestries of eyes

"I've written some poetry I don't understand myself.”

Carl Sandburg

Sometimes poems

pop out of my head

like stars in the sky

But most of the time

the words are dead or

hibernating like bears

until it's Spring again.
