  • Swallow Yourself (Poem)

    And the mask did shimmer and flow like molten gold

    but where did the tattered robe of the exalted King go?

    Chant and scream until all in unison sing--

  • Between Greed and the Mask (poem)

    In the darkness when man does sleep

    and a pallid moon is the only company he keeps

  • Midnight Every Day

    Nightly, he would walk home from work. John hoped and waited in his secret heart to see the sun break from the horizon to end his everynight.

    It was almost as if the sun was hiding from him. He stopped along the sidewalk and turned to the eastern skies.

  • One by One

    The diesel motor ran loud. It drowned out the rattling of the nearby chain link fence. The distant cars in the review mirror slid by noiselessly.

    And still we waited.

    The dry drone of the news complained of the usual terror attacks in other countries: a…
