Love and Fantasy





go hand

in hand.”


~ Marc Chagall


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



does exist

cannot be argued

what is happening now



Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7


afraid to emote

someone may laugh at me

stuff unknown feelings


a life lived in confusion

was it love or lust ? ? ?




chaos ruling
politics above common sense
who do they think they are fooling
can anyone see through the pretence

police action, conflict, a war by any name
always has the other side to blame
kind thoughts dissipating into thin air
real compassion is truly rare

words arranged and rearranged like a flower bouquet
too many choices, like on a Swedish buffet
a literal smorgasbord ending with a chocolate fountain
the next challenge always a bigger, higher mountain

was there anyone who knew what
or was it just another rhyming couplet
the poem is always forcing the rhyme
while our lives are running out of time

it is only a problem, if you make it one
if anything at all makes sense, you have already won


ME and the Boss
