Café Nowhere


After the many conversations

had already trailed off

and the two sets of coffee mugs have already been set down.

Two old friends shared plans and wishes, some realistic while yet some more future based.

In lieu of goodbyes. A moment of deep silence fills the time and space…

One set of eyes filled with a indefatigable determination……

the other seemingly so far away, with a hint of tears.

The tales not told, and the tales that could not be told.

Blood Money

Blood Money


Amaranthine hues and tones

the many years

of spilled blood


into the soils

of far off lands

but, this time……not buying

and decidedly long-distanced

from tainted messages and reasonings

smoke and mirrors

tailored in webs of tangled complicities

pocked with flaws and coloured with prejudices

many faces of enmity

the destructive waves hate and ignorance

just too hard to miss..or ignore

from never ending streams

of incessant and mind-numbing

manipulations and fearmongering

wrapped in flags and patriotisms

circles of decidedly blind populace

spelled and mind fucked

hopeless in their haplessness

years of suggestion, key phrases, double language, and mixed messages

looking completely through

all of the blank eyed and smiley faced

Politicians, Lobbyists,

Behind the scenes Puppets

ever ready

 with proud declarations and tired catch phrases

their rehearsed speeches

and overused slogans

ribboned and medaled to the hilt

to the suits

of a killing trade

always having been quite mindful

of the collateral damage

calculated losses

 that were already figured into

set and ready with their machines

stuffs of destruction……


War is Not the Answer…or part of any solutions ever leading to peace

Solo Missions-Fabyan Parkway 050513 002

Brightest sunlight

Dispelling the last of winter’s

stubborn influence

My imagination


by a new season’s


Their prismatic brilliance

as evidenced

in the striking purples, blues, greens, and yellows

My eyes fixed

far above

an endless parade

of wispy birds and pining dragons

shaped and drawn in rows

of lazy fluffed clouds

a steady procession

making their way

across the sky

The river’s lapping waters

Quick and dark

with currents deep

The sounds of birdcalls crisscrossing

both south and north

Of the old crossing bridge


a one hundred year old ruins

Mere hints

of a more glorious past…..
