Carouselfie

Throughout the morning 
and during the whole night
Not a creature was stirring 
not even a billowing kite 
Sentient to certain vibrations
the higher up it climbed
Nor a wooden rocking horse 
leaping over a crescent moon 
Viewed through wind chimes
could ever escape the view
Again in a merry go round 
through the carved horse's
Inlaid eye one facet gleaming
at a time preparing to begin
The same ride as before
all over again once more

Rhimes For
Savage Times

napkin!

you folded
up my life
licked the
edge and
tore it up.

napkin.

still a friend
first and fore
most and will
end a friend
least and last.

napkin,

you didn't ask
to go on a picnic
and I never tried
to pack a bag
so you just
came along
 for the ride
napkin.

Now this
is our song.

~aNnounc'Ment

The creditors within have afforded us a glimpse
of the coming tales to grace the screens without

'twas Quick in case you missed it; already gone
I must insist 'twas a fearsome beast if I ever saw one

and there WAS a tale of a merry old soul here
then not, then here in a poorly hidden hole

yet not a verse describing hardened French bread
to a murderous spear compared with soft Challah.

Come Back for more if you Dare to score a piece
of prose broken off the old man's twisted ropes
