Face to Face



Face to face at last

Perpetual gaze is held

No words are spoken

Hands reaching out with purpose

You grab the last cookie first

Pleasure Hike Tanka 2

Beautiful forest 
Hiking with brave friends I trust
I hopscotch across
River rock, slippery moss
Fell on my butt, soaking wet

I'm such a dumb klutz
Everyone laughs their guts  off
Wow! That hurt my butt 
Screwed up. No clothes I regret
Walked around soaking wet

Phil

Leave Me Alone!

You Dragged Me From My Warm Hole!

It's Too Early!

I Can't Predict The Weather!

Put Me Back And Go Away!

Entropy

Order gives way 
To disorder 
I look at my reflection 
In the mirror 
And believe every word.

TREASURED BOOTY

a baby bootie
ecstatically clings to her
clear garrison cap —
the navy does not issue
children in sailor’s seabag

Poor Foghorn

My big ol' rooster,
thought he was **** of the walk...
Until....Red, my hen 
ended it all today with 
a flogging and loud squawk!..

Love And Laughter

Your smile blends with mine
as our laughter cheers the clouds.
Our days sunny be
long as we look for the light-
leave the darkness far behind.

PREACHER

PREACHER

the preacher explains
as he travels tracks on his palm
he is on god’s path
helter-skelter tracks indeed!
the midnight express toots warning

reverend smith
with his superior air
mounts the podium
from the loft i can see
through the tear     his underwear

after sunday service
a hundred dollar bill in the collection plate
“praise the lord!” says smith
to himself     quietly covering it
with a five dollar bill

Go Pokemon Go

kids get distraction 
oh I love Pokemon Go
parents get action
once I've had a Peek-at-chu
can't wait to play Poke the mom

Strange Love

Why do I love you?
When I look into your face
Your teeth are too big,
That nose is extremely long.
Yet all I want in a dog.

Tanka You But No Tanka You

got writer's-block-blues
ain't got nothin to enter
it's YOUR fault PD
so here are my conditions:
un-block me and ouch that HURT

why do this to me?
why resort to violence?
(I bruise easily)
so here are my conditions:
drive me to the hospital...

THE PITCH

THE PITCH

why
I ask
did she do that
i console myself
sun got in her eyes


trying to remember
is it mary lou
or carrie
never mind
whichever just gave me the finger


this english class
so big
yet so small
sitting back of
that long    shiny    black hair


all i said was
could i borrow a piece of paper
then she blew
tossed the wet rag
over her shoulder


that awful night
I asked her out
no reply
just a face
that belongs on rushmore

THE PITCH 2

THE PITCH 2

words then silence
can alter one’s perception
like being in another world
“get lost” she says
see what i mean

the girl next door
plays the piano badly
oh she is gorgeous
but all turns to ashes
when she murders debussy

those early days
there was this one girl
but i lacked courage
after 30 years she’s fat
and i am prince valiant

oh those short dresses
and so so short
i can’t remember faces
days of the week yes
and colors
first kiss
trying to arrange the angle
close your eyes
go for it
a near miss

JUST COFFEE

JUST COFFEE

morning coffee
that wonderful aroma
piping hot
the first sip shakes you awake
the second resignation

she finally agreed
but just to a cup of coffee
no romance    just conversation
just two looking at each other
the coffee better be good

she said
she just wanted some time to think
i spilled my coffee
just a small stain
too large to wash out

      At Starbucks
“anything else?”
she wants to know
always the same
she’s pretty in a way
but that expression would moldy my cookie

Dieting

Dieting

sure enough
lost five pounds the first week
no money back
no money back the next 51 either
dr.slim getting rich

cold turkey
the only way to go on a diet
yes    says dr. slim
but put it between two slices of bread
and you’re screwed

the world
is full of starving people
so says t.v.
it’s terrible says marge
stuffing down her 4th taco

Lost

last night playing poker
i lost everything
my mortgage    my car
and yes    you *****
your alimony check too

lost childhood
mother hubbard
boy blue
the entire familiar crew
and adultery doesn’t help the now

LOST IT

LOST IT

trying to remember
what I forgot –
what was it
i forgot to forget to remember? …
now where was i?

forgot your name
getting old
your face is familiar
our fiftieth anniversary?
oh! thank you dear whatever your name is

Wife yells out the door
"Don't forget the cannoli
and DON'T BACK OVER THE KIDS!"
'Alright, already!'
Another day on the job
(Gotta go murder some guy)

ocean waves rush in
like rambunctious preschoolers
at morning recess
eager to entertain you
in goofy games of pretend
