Sample poems


Mostly miraculous masochist malarkey:
many mud masochists move marshward merrily.
Mesmerized murmuring masochist masses
meet macerating mud, moonlight morasses,
mossiest, messiest moorland mud meets
mistiest, muggiest murks, millipedes.
Mizzle, muck, mandrake, mash, maggots make muddle.
Many mosquito murks move, mollycoddle
masochists, milk marinated membranes,
masochist's merriest mania maintains.
Mosquitos munch masochist's man made mojito,
making masochists moan: "mosquito, mosquito!"

published in "Parody on Impression", 3/1, 2014, ISSN 2165-6606


Shadows grow
out of their clothes.
The moon gives you
a magic hat.
Without any trace
of the video track
the soundtrack
to your lip movements
arrives as a mere
pressure wave.
