You Don’t Belong Silence and Self Protection: Revolutionary Haikus

March 27, 2013

these were written probably in 2011/2012 on the back of an envelope.

It’s the silence, the/
not knowing, that hurts the worst./
The “You don’t belong.”


For “understanding”,/
she thanked me (sarcastically)./
I just protect me.
I’m protecting me.

Women Want a Man Who: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

November 28, 2010

Women want a man/
who will get the car door/
and extend his hand/
and lift her up, then more.

He’ll breathe a deep sigh/
as he holds her near,/
and look deep into her eyes,/
and whisper softly in her ear

Even if they’re just/
going out for fast food./
Not because he must,/
but because he’s that good.

And when she speaks deep thoughts soft and low,
he’ll listen, and understand, and she’ll know.

now understanding.

The Poet and The Pessimist: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

June 5, 2010

The poet/
and the pessimist/

could not co-exist./

His words started to bother/

where he could/
be understood.

Understanding the Fine Line: A Romantic ConTEXTing Poem

January 21, 2010

There’s a fine/


between  showing I care;/

of taking the dare/

of being too mushy,/

and being too demanding,/

and too pushy./

I hope you’ll  be/


of me.
