In Back, Here

(Behind their home, reflecting today.) In Back, Here Standing in back, here. Behind their home. Reflecting today, on then. And, them. First, when, just a house, inside, impotent and sterile.

Dominatrix Mommies

Dominatrix Mommies Recently, in my quest to evaluate the societal imbalances between men and women, I’ve been focusing on moms and dads … the parents that are family heads.

A Last Mission

(Grandeur in amending mighty remains.) A Final Mission A majestic oak. Towering. Unbending. Regal-in-place. All encompassing. A life tree of principle and protection, viable in familial space. Today brought down hard; a blinding and ferocious flash. God’s act, in a split-second searing skyward hiss from heaven. Once airy, ethereal, abruptly shattered, now scattered in its … Continue reading A Last Mission

The Inkman Daillllly Newssss … Daily News he decrees, offering news, hope, as he chants, voice resonant; wry smile, twinkle eye, greeting those in kind, proud, avowed, endowed, and rather eminent.
