Your Turn to Scripture: A Revolutionary Email Poem

March 31, 2010

Ask, and ye shall receive.
Seek, and ye shall find.
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
Wer klopfet an, den wird es aufgetan.

And Elijah went upon the mount, and a strong wind came and rent the rocks asunder …
but The LORD was not in the wind.
And after the wind came a fire …
but The LORD was not in the fire.
And after the fire, an earthquake …
but The LORD was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake,
You have asked.
I’ve given.
You’ve sought.
You found.
You’ve knocked.
I’ve opened.

And after the wind,
the fire,
and the earthquake …
a still,

Your turn.


Full Moon Dreams: A Romantic ConTEXTing Poem

March 31, 2010

I dream I am with U tonight,/
full-moon’d romance in the air./
We lay 2gether as moonlite/
shimmers in yer hair./
All perfect, it seems,/
’til the end of my dreams.

Holding Watch at the Cave Entrance: A Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

March 30, 2010

Just so/
you know/
where I went:/
I’m Annticipating,/
and waiting,/
where I was sent./
You can’t say/
I’m running away./
I’ll not stray/
from where you/
told me to/

Follow Up To English Rose Sonnet: Revolutionary IMprov Poetry

March 29, 2010

I wrote you a sonnet.
Some called it my best yet.
But still,
when last night’s thrill
had faded away
the next day,
instead of saying something engaging,
it seemed you were bent on raging.
“You’re emotionally driven”
was what you said,
and I could imagine eyes rolling
back in your head.
And your face turning red.
And I’ll tell you the truth (if I dare):
I wanted to disconnect right then and there.

Asking a Siren Friend For Help: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

March 29, 2010

My friend and client (and Siren, Medusa, Goddess) Erin at Sweet Lily Salon ( does my hair organically and gives me advice about asking women out, especially when I’m feeling “out of my league” (which, thanks to her, happens VERY infrequently). I wrote this to her on the eve of something scary which, ultimately, never happened.

My fear’s about/
going out/
with a TV/
Yes, I dared!/
Now, I’m scared!/
What’ll she think of me?/
I can’t seduce;/
Eek! Cute’s no use!/
But do/
words woo?

Sonnet on an English Rose: Romantic IMprov Poetry

March 29, 2010

The dew shimmered
on a rose’s petals pink.
It gathered there
as he made her think.

His words reached her deep reality,
and brought her to the brink
of a shuddering finality
with dew-moistened petals pink.

And the poet surprised her
with his words and feelings new,
whispered deep inside her,
where they, moistened, grew.

Could he, through word and letter,
be the only one who’d get her?

Phoney Phoning A Mall-Walking Woman: Revolutionary Email Poem

March 28, 2010

I think I was mauled
at the mall.
I tried call
ing you twice.
No dice.
It seemed a mistake
(or the number is fake).
Either way
it’s now your turn to say
what you want.
I punt.
