Last Of The Hard Men

You are very difficult to find,
More difficult to kill.
How many shots did you take?
Tequila or bullets?
Please, don’t be flippant.
There is a great deal at stake.
Pray tell.
The consensus of opinion
Says you are the

Martin Luther

I had a dream.
Words well chosen
By Doctor King.
Brings back a memory.
Of things,
That might have been.

The messenger,
For acts unseen.
Listen to his words
As his mind is keen.
He liked women,… Read the rest


The ruptured structure,
Of our lives,
The truth.
If you want proof,

Can’t be put back together,

Picks it up,

Runs with it,
To fields of rapture.… Read the rest

Feeling it’s the beat.
Going underground,
Where I don’t make a sound.

Relied on no … Read the rest

Only fit for fire.
Takes another look.
Is there any pattern here?
Gets … Read the rest

This is How it’s Told

There is a story here,
A man so bold,
Something of a cavalier.

Had no fear.
This is how it’s told.

Riding in the woods one day
He spied a maid, lovely to behold,
And approaching her … Read the rest

Once Upon an Evening Dreary

Once upon an evening dreary,
When my bones felt weak and weary
I heard a knock on my front door.
“Who is there?” I asked.
No answer came.
I peeped through the curtain.
I was certain I saw a man

Epic Formulaic

– Epic 1 –

New story,
Same beginning.
I know how this ends.
Our hero,
Deep on morals;
How tragic he looks.
He has no friends.
Always on the move
Definition of a loner.
Short on words.
Long on
