Poem: Do I Know You.

Poem: No Maps Here.

No Maps Here. . . Hollow points of reference Are all a person relies on, No complete directions Seem to be provided, There are many points of entry But only one unmarked door As the official exit. I have searched many times For chimneys to the surface. . .

Poem: Get Happily Naked.

Poem: This Is The Real Thing.

This Is The Real Thing. . This world we know Is not a playground, It is a testing ground, A school of thought For who we think we are. It is like a sweet shop With the door unlocked, An electric line-up Of  hanging chickens. We have a full free will To take until we […]

Poem: Snapshot In A Life.
