DICHOTOMY PROJECT

~~~~~ Found Verbiage Free Verse Exploring what haiku, poems and stories can be garnered from the headlines, sub-heads and captions (the bold-faced type) in my local daily newspaper, I began to wonder what this says about our existence at this moment in time. Like snapshots, capturing images, emotions, our greater story expressed in our headlines. […]

Mute, Moot

~~~~~ This computer which consumed my life Nibbled away in small bits, large bytes. It jabbed, twisted as it stuck in the knife; If only Ben Franklin never flew the kite. A world away, you read what I’ve written. This strange interface provides translation. The powers that be would rather we fit in; Beware, they […]

Never Desert Dessert

Frozen gold, Sweet and wonderful, Held in your steady hand. Quick licks to keep it smooth; Napkin and paper cone securing it. You considered having two scoops;   Now you are glad that you chose one .     D \   Though the electric yellow of lemon / D RI  \ And the rich darkness of chocolate […]
