These words seep out of the thin midnight and early morning cracks of time in my life. Every day these words release me. Hopefully they do something exciting for you as well.

Wheels roll where sandals and high heels trod
Head side to side, on the even plane
wheeling to higher ground looking up
as the ones without excuses
fail to notice.
Beautiful obvious.

Myday not Friday

End of energy
Weekend Calls
Sleep and Time
With ones I love

Sometimes it is hard to
Follow through with
Carpe Diem
Despite knowing
the moment is all
that we ever have

New energy
Weekend Calls
Laughter and Play
With the ones I love.

Sometimes it is easier
like now.

Haves And Have Nots

The haves have
time to make eye contact with their kids

The have-nots have
a boat in the side garage that never gets

The have-nots have
dinner served by a nervous
French guy
on silk and china.

The haves have
supper served by mom
with napkins and a smile.

The have-nots have
half of everything and
a bill.

The haves have each other.

Dry Inside

Sunshine is moonshine
When working inside
trying to not think about it
forces you to think about it
nothing to do about it
try to forget about it.

Prohibition from nine to five.
Finally you are free to go,
Punch out and get punch drunk
swimming in the rays.

Dance until it is dark
See you tomorrow.

Heap of Trouble

Next time you say
"I'm not going to die on that hill"
be careful.
More often than not people die
on a hill
that consists
of many

You have no idea how hard I am hitting the letters on my keyboard as I write this
bits of plastic shrapnel drilling the front of my computer monitor, the side of the phone,
tripping off of the edge of my desk

Slowly the implied rage one once was able to translate to the writing by breaking lead or pressing excessively hard on the page has gone away. The first typewriters did not hide the fact that some words may have come from a more frustrated place due to over indentation. But the modern computers have washed this completely away with language laser surgery.

Now we have the words and an occasional computer trick to create an inorganic illusion.

I am still beating the hell out of my keys.

CleanWords MessyReality

Puke is cleaner than barf or regurgitate.

I will clean up the puke
You go and deal with the Vomit.

A toot smells better than
a fart, or flatuate.

These are things to contemplate.

No Wrongs Make a Right

Why do poems that rhyme sound so corny?

Some of these poems will rhyme.

Why does so much poetry seem like scattered thought?

Some of these poems will be scattered.

Isn't poetry supposed to make you feel something?

No. Some of these poems will leave you feeling nothing.

Perfectly ordered random chaos with words.

Lets experiment and play.

Welcome to Flowetry in Motion

no edits
no wrongs
only writes
the greatest write being the act of writing itself.

Open up
embrace the page
we learn together how
to freestyle with style
One day at a time.

This is my fix
you are my mirror
Help me keep writing or
I will disappear.
