Hush little baby don’t you blatRapid Transit
Or momma will lay you out flat
If you get up to dance and sing
Bust your head with this shoe I fling

Her Mantel

Let me lay down right there.escher-mc-auge-2400978
It seems I longer care
Funny I don’t despair
Lay out all feelings bare
Catch my thoughts in midair
Voices no longer blare
Ceiling cracked as I stare
Pink Floyd’s brick fell I swear
No longer need the tare
Her mantel hangs my pair

Kingdom Lost

The blaze filled the night time skyLoveforceNum5
Mountain fairies rescued the queen
Winds loft cinders of souls died
Lost hope growing as her scream

Pot O Gold

Emails I receive from ladies afar
Promising a future in the stars
Would it be true I find bizarre
You would have to send money
Fly me across the sea
For you to see me
Then I’d believe
Love for

Pot O Gold

Saddlebag’s Lode

The road I ride hardens my soulSaddlebags
Lies from my lips sealed with a kiss
Her money missed the only toll

Blood in a puddle let the die roll
Crowd gathers in my dark abyss
The road I ride hardens my soul

Ante in chips it’s hit or hold
Twenty one wins losers walk pissed
Her money missed the only toll

Reading the tell know when to fold
Playing the odds losers dismissed
The road I ride hardens my soul

Whispers increase the crowd extols
Table empty nothing but bliss
Her money missed the only toll

Confidence reigns gold fills the hole
Saddlebag’s lode need no assist
The road I ride hardens my soul
Her money missed the only toll

Senryu Eight

Full Moon Wolf


Ancestral aching
Guttural bellows erupt
Full moon echoes not
