Once our friends

split-fluked ones

invade Cove

Spears rage

Nets drown

Families culled

From sea womb torn

now orphan Calf

forever slave

A Road to Nowhere…

Line in sand

cross 2 foam kisses

Listen 2 gulls gossip

find anonymous messages in shells

Walk beach & sea fills steps

as if U never were

Hurricane Ike slams 1900 Hurricane Memorial on Galveston Seawall

Wicked witch rides wind

passes, sheering branches

ghosts rustle atop roofs

ghouls howl thunder

cackle lightening

storm churns nite terrors

Rats & roaches flee rock jetty       

days B4 earth trembles

sea surges 2 sink human conceits

Child collects shells

mom soaks in melanoma’s rays

For KO — some people just do not stop to see the sunsets…

Nature’s paradox:

Arid desert blazes

igneous red

Sea squalls mislay

pearl troves

Lightning bows

neon arc


eve’s rainbow,

allows stars

Dogs howl

wolf god messages

wildness conjoles

hearth protects

soul’s limbo

free heart echoes

time before master

bed an ersatz den

No green thumb of spring youth

my brown touch irony

Even cactus weeps thorns

Only weeds thrive

lure lush promises

then poison by regret

Gray forces mass east

rain shards pummel grass

blades bend defeated

civilian flowers cower

armored snails defend leaves
