Poems

Poems don’t need to rhyme, but write about what you know.

Poems

On August 13, 2019, I published my 39th book which was also my 19th book in Hawaii and my 19th book of poetry. It has 68 poems that I wrote in Maui this year. It is called Anti at the Decade's End and it is on Amazon in Kindle and paperback.

I will begin writing new poems soon. There is no particular theme. I just enjoy writings poems and the release helps me make sense of life. It is a concise way to capture and synthesize thoughts and ideas.

I have not picked a name for my 20th poetry book, but I write a poem every 2-3 days on average. I will post them here and probably publish them at the end of the year.

As I write poems I also write short stories. I have written 50 stories for the 10th and final book in A Brand New World. It is called How It All Ends and it will have 105 stories when I publish it on December 22. I write a new one every 2-3 days on average and upload them to my website. The 10 books will contain 500 stories.

Thanks for your interest in my writing. Good luck.

The Professional

Here I go again,
putting paper to pen,
listening to Drive by R.E.M.

I pledge to pen the truth
and nothing but the truth,
I don’t need to blow smoke

I will capture everything I see,
no mater how inglorious it may be
and I will not fail to judge everybody
as they constantly condemn themselves

Blackened in the End

Everybody
wants to leave
a glorious legacy,
so the others will say,
“Wow! They awesome!”

Nobody
wants to leave behind
a wake of death and destruction

I'm 45

Just admit it.
45 is a special guy.
Who on earth is like him?
So much better than 44......
At least according to one type

What a wild day and age.
Has there ever been a time like this?
Explosive, divisive, destructive and blackening,
always ready to erupt and catch fire once again......

Pairing lies with the truth
sounds crazy over 12,000 times,
but I can’t say I’ve done it even once

I’m 45 and
I am ready to kill
this upcoming year like
nobody has ever done so bigly

Summertime

Everywhere I go
I hope I am the only one there
because people pollute everywhere they go
and whenever they get there they pollute some more

People intrude on my privacy
because they are discontent with themselves
pointing their camera at me like they’ve never seen a man

I like being by myself,
my regular routine keeps us clean,
but yours is utterly filthy and very disgusting

People lie to themselves
and they deceive others to look good,
but in reality they are ugly, sad, pathetic, morons
that care about themselves and money more than anything

I will observe
this present shit show
and be honest about it every day,
but it is quite a shame that people are so evil
and don’t care about anything including people of the way

Deception

You may have surfboards
on top of your dirty van,
but I doubt you surf.

Island Biker

Hey rich bike repair man,
why do you love money so much?

Every time I come in your store
you try to make me feel bad
for buying a cheap bike

I bought my fly ride for only $100
and after about five months
I’ve only spent $150
for everything

Paying a buck a day
for a cheap beach cruiser
always works very nicely for me,
so sorry it won’t work for you though

You want me to buy your $400 bike
with expensive bells, whistles and lights,
but your attitude is shitty and I don’t need it

When my $100 bike dies,
I will throw it in the garbage
and buy another cheap bicycle
because it would not make sense
to spend more when I don’t have to

You shouldn’t be such an ass
because people shouldn’t feel bad
about the bike that they buy and like
just because you want to sell them stuff

You are pathetic and I wish others
in this small town fixed bikes because like I said
I did everything I could to avoid your shop as long as possible
