We Should Have Seen It Coming

A Poem for the people of Aurora, Colorado —

Bullets cut Superman’s cape

Fly, break neck

Joker poisons self

No baggy tights

double entendre

or Kittlady hiss

Bat signal black

@ midnite

Poem for my Dying Mother

Childhood forgiven

invectives evaporate

futile love now compassion

Truth defeats irony

peace comes

with final sleep

as nightmares fall away

The Lion

In memory of and with profound thanks to

Edward M. Kennedy“Lion of the U. S. Senate”


Lion roars

and all creatures rise

not in fear

but to hear

to heed the king’s sage majesty

as he walks gallantly

into the darkest forest
