A Fleeting Existence (poems)

.


A Fleeting Existence - my third and latest collection of poetry is now available from Amazon. It contains over seventy poems across a broad swath of topics and experiences from poems of poetry, philosophy, psychology and science to the joy and awe of the nature and the universe we live in. Available now at Amazon.com.

A few samples to whet your appetite:

"Hysteria"

I think I have a wandering uterus
and I’m not sure when it began.
Years ago I had trouble breathing
doc said a polyp in my nose.

Then the headaches began
on that same left side I knew the
polyp had grown and with no relief
from aspirin or drugs,
I had to endure the pain,
but it got better -- eventually.

Then as though I was in a movie
-- Aliens with Sigourney Weaver --
one of those buggers was in
my liver pounding and pushing
to burst free. Such pain I’ve
never felt since my gall-bladder
was removed. I could only figure
it must have grown back,
when the docs found nothing wrong,
but it got better -- eventually.

Now I have this pain -- dare I say --
in my right testicle as though
it’s clamped in vise-grips
and a strong man tugging hard
and God I want to die.

It gets better and worse
I hope it gets better
but still I wonder
if perhaps it’s not all due
to that polyp on my brain.


"The Fall"

He lay broken at the bottom of the stairs
for three days before they found him.

The cats would rub against him
trying to get him to move –
even licking his face.

He’d broken his neck leaving him
unable to do anything but blink,
lick his lips, and swallow with difficulty.


"Full Moon Valentine’s Day"

The wolves will certainly howl
Warren Zevon will return
and the Werewolves of London
will have their day -- provided
they can cross the Thames.


"2/22/22"

will be a great day
and only eight years away.
