Gone, But Still There

23 February, 2010 (14:58) | Poetry | 2 comments

Beard Poster by Michael Buchino of the Beard Revue. Sometimes, just when I think I’m used to it being gone, I feel my beard tingle and tickle, happiness in a fuzzy guise. But when I reach up to stroke it, it suddenly become clear: my beard is gone. I could regrow it, let the wilderness […]

The Day Before Christmas

25 December, 2008 (00:45) | Poetry | No comments

My uncle Bruce and his girlfriend Alison who hosted Christmas dinner. This was the first time I’ve ever attended Christmas with my family. Forever the screwup, I tried to pickup Starbucks Gift Cards for my family on Erev Christmas. It wasn’t that I didn’t know what to get them, but that I was simply too […]

I dreamt about you last night. I chased you up and down corridors, through apartments and operating rooms, and always you remained a step ahead. Eventually, you lost me. I wasn’t sure quite where I was. I tried to retrace my steps, but I had been watching you, not where I was going. And then […]

A Valentine Treat for Those of You Sick of Valentine’s Day

15 February, 2008 (02:01) | Poetry | 8 comments

An Ode to MacGyver There I stood, weak and weary, my smile askew, though slightly cheery, Carefully avoiding all the customers there in the store, In front of me, it sat their waiting, the challenge very much sedating, as the scale sat in parts spread across the storeroom floor. “What the fuck are all these […]

Happenstance

21 March, 2007 (20:13) | Poetry | 6 comments

(Image by Antoine de Villiers) If we were to meet under different circumstances, would we still act the same way? Would we lavishly clink our wine glasses by the fireside, talking of Voltaire and the history of thought? Would we glare at each other from our respective checkout lines, each of us jealous of the […]

Tonight’s Entry: A Snorfleglorp of Rhyme and Meter

19 August, 2005 (00:08) | Poetry | No comments

“A snorfleglorp? What’s that?” you ask. A strange new word I shall unmask. It means a lot, a ton or many; sometimes even more than plenty. In the end, it is the dose of rhyme and meter in this post, for I seem to be inspired to rhyme about events transpired. The Moose, or Muss […]

I Lack Recourse

27 July, 2005 (00:12) | Poetry | No comments

I lack recourse. No matter how much I may want change, I can’t have it because I lack recourse. Try as I might–and I do: I vote, I protest, I chant, I sit in, I complain, I fight the good fight, I picket, I pump my fist in solidarity, I throw my cobwebbed wallet around […]

Divorce

14 July, 2005 (00:26) | Poetry | 22 comments

Divorce isn’t a legal matter, but an emotional one. I think I have divorced myself from reality. It feels wonderful.

Iambic Pentameter is such a bitch….

11 April, 2004 (21:34) | Poetry | 16 comments

My week has been so full of strange strange things, from Daylight Savings changes and no sleep to opportunities in life’s upswing. And so I look to take the next great leap. Once again, Inquiring Minds was dumped because of lack of guests, I hate to say. I always seem to find one and get […]

Just Another Melodramatic Sonnet

4 November, 2003 (03:07) | Poetry | No comments

A voice rings out from deep inside my mind; the void outside is filled with errant thought, its tendrils looping, dancing intertwined, creating life in spaces where there’s naught. I cannot stand the silent emptiness that blinds my mind from restful solitude. And so I let it wander and digress on topics on which average […]
