And So Sang Coyote

call me coyote
yes, my breaths come in canticles
as it crawls up towards the sky
each exhalation shakes the dunes
like a thousand grains gone by

The Flight of Diana, August 13th, Aricia

she takes off her clothes
to spill the blood of another
two-story god
with a building in his body
and vines cracking his facade

Low Star

Low star, pull your pants up

Low star, slippry and dense

Low star, walk the rooftops

Low star, impervious.

La Comodona

It's a mistake to let them work it out between them who's top bitch.

The Bagatelle That Played On In His Head

your mind is toying with a gift, sir
This new concoction takes the piss, sir
I’ll ask you once so softly mister
Oh please don’t take her away
I know you’ve got this silver silk brocade
and you’re planning to show her
of just what you are made

in one grief packed droplet

falling from the corner of your eye

unnoticed by anyone

She dreamt she was a flower

blooming in a field

petals wide open

Limerick Prompts

I recently started posting limerick prompts (I call them Limerick-Offs) on a regular basis, roughly two or three times a week. You can always find my latest Limerick-Off here. And for those who are active on Facebook, I'm also doing the Limerick-Offs on my Facebook page. As a matter of fact, it's really taken off on Facebook, with a good number of regular participants. The way they work is I post a limerick and encourage prompt participants to write their own limerick using the same first line. I very much hope you'll participate on my blog and/or on Facebook.

The Masquerade

Go on, polish your mask

Keep it on, don’t you falter

Don’t let it break, don’t let it fall

Because all the world’s a stage

And the masquerade never ends
