Love Trumps All

In a smoky room scented with bourbon and sweat I clasp my cards so tightly they bend.   This hand with its hearts, clubs and diamonds is everything. Whether good or bad, I bet on it believing the win or loss depends on the deal.   Finally, bereft, my chips gone my account indebted I […]

The Limitless Life

I make a budget write down sources: Coaching, book sales, rental payments will come. Groceries, utilities, mortgage payments will go. All computes well. Income covers outflow.   I’m safe.   But what if I get sick sued flooded broken lost?   Emotions flutter in my chest. Mind cannot compute.   It has no safety net […]

Eternal Spring

The mind says “Wait, wait, just a little longer until the days lengthen. Then the world will be brighter.”   The Beloved answers, “Now, now, this moment stretches to eternity.

The Great Lover

Oh unutterable utterance Unrepeatable repetition when my heart drops down to my gut and they mate in their pain how I long for You.   As night closes in and cold hardens the leaves the lower lovers entwine. Dungeon doors clang closed as they couple on dank cement with only a simple grate opening upon a black sky.   […]
