  1. The Running Son
    June 24, 2013


    Your poke me, with point and ball,
    then pull back, your torture an all
    consuming attack on my blank wall.
    With Hollywood creativity
    you blot me, slow water-drip insanity,

    a well of self pity, and a call
    to end it all, put ball-point to page,
    and allow those sadistic muses to
    rage, lust, jab, thrust key to cage and
    unlock my sleeping and shackled sage.
