cut me the slack
and watch my back
the bitterness black
bottomless and
verve struck
rings like a hot nerve
we cut

this love

these words entice
like a kiss
wanton and
never given
like an obsession

Style / type: 
Free verse
Editing stage: 


writing! I enjoyed the journey your words took me on!



"Death" is nonsense: what is there to die?
"Life"? How could " life" "die"? That is a contradiction
in terms. Can "light" become "darkness"?
"Light" can only cease to be apparent

Wei Wu Wei

We would write poetry in two typewriters
and we would answer on the bottom of them just like here
Airmail paper or vellum great memories..

this one was fired off faster then most
as I had not much time left on the computer
here when I was here like yesterday
and every other day it seems

I like that
the ability to create in different moods
and textures
I miss the typewriter though a lot
and am starting to write longhand in
a journal again

author comment

there's nothing like being in the rhythm with the whole mind body soul and spirit....this is when the muse does her thing.. offers open hands....fluidity, lucidity and startling stark revelations.

always read your stuff though i may not comment one writes an Esker poem like you do.



These words entice
like a kiss
wanton and
never given
like an obsession

This love excites

These words stike my heart like hot irons from a smithys flame
but only from one source the only source

your words always reach deep into my sould


Electric blue

Electric Blue

sure enough
it adds to taste....
and the speed
is mostly loved
by typewriter
or laps top
when one is all above...
