Gamey: Senryu

GAMEY

Did his best to make
An honest woman of her
She was too far gone

The Hidden Snare: Shadorma

THE HIDDEN SNARE

Beware of
Dangerous people
Stay silent
Stay alert
Unless you’re a masochist
And want to be caught

Possibilities

POSSIBILITIES

Relationships
(And communications)
All too often

In time degenerate
(Or become enmeshed)
Into game playing

There are ways out
(But not always taken)
Alack and alas

Unfinished Love Poem

UNFINISHED LOVE POEM

Lay it aside for a while
Maybe days or weeks
Sometimes even years

Till all falls into place
A significant poem will
Always find its moment

And in that moment
Their writer will also
Find a completeness

Those not significant
Reveal themselves as such
And are easily thrown away

Cat And Mouse: Shadorma

CAT AND MOUSE

Let’s not add
Views about gender
To the mix
Relations
Are so complex already
And besides we’re drunk

Bad News

And this one is for Maya because she’ll know why.

PORTIONS FOR FOXES

There’s blood in my mouth ’cause I been biting my tongue all week
I keep on talkin’ trash but I never say anything

And the talkin’ leads to touchin’
And the touchin’ leads to sex
And then there is no mystery left

And it’s bad news
Baby, I’m bad news
I’m just bad news, bad news, bad news

I know I’m alone if I’m with or without you
But just bein’ around you offers me another form of relief

When the loneliness leads to bad dreams
And the bad dreams lead me to callin’ you
And I call you and say, “C’mere!

And it’s bad news
Baby, I’m bad news
I’m just bad news, bad news, bad news
And it’s bad news
Baby, it’s bad news
It’s just bad news, bad news, bad news

‘Cause you’re just damage control
For a walking corpse like me – like you
‘Cause we’ll all be portions for foxes
Yeah, we’ll all be portions for foxes

There’s a pretty young thing in front of you
And she’s real pretty and she’s real into you
And then she’s sleepin’ inside of you

And the talkin’ leads to touchin’
Then the touchin’ leads to sex
And then there is no mystery left

And it’s bad news
I don’t blame you
I do the same thing, I get lonely too
And you’re bad news
My friends tell me to leave you
That you’re bad news, bad news, bad news

We’re bad news
Baby, you’re bad news
And you’re bad news
Baby, you’re bad news

The Mating Game: Senryu

THE MATING GAME

They drew their pictures
And once so armed sallied forth
Obliviously

Least Said, Soonest Mended

LEAST SAID, SOONEST MENDED

Out to lunch
(Noblesse oblige)
Mind idles in neutral
While away across the way

One there would now and again
Share with her lunch companion
That currently displayed on her phone
… Almost like having a conversation

While at his own table
There is at its best at least
A certain level of idle chitchat
He even joins in occasionally

In between attempts to relax
All the tensions in his body
Eventually at last it’s all over
And he is able to walk away

What a relief!

End Of Chapter: Shadorma

END OF CHAPTER

Out the door
On the road again
Halt of foot
Sore of heart
Yet recalling as you roam
Not built in a day

Tentacle: Cinqku

TENTACLE

Doorbell
Standing here
Scared stiff for sure
Yet you plucked up courage
Hopeful
