Unsolved Mystery


I don’t speculate

About family secrets now

Unsolved mystery

Lost power to captivate

Though chains still cut deep, cripple

Iridescent Birth


With final agonizing push, their world

Flushed with a sudden iridescence

Accompanied by first wail…the child

Of promise made entrance amid

Tearful shimmer…parents’ grateful ecstasy.

Language to Appease, Spare Me



How ears despise double-talk of

Language which seeks to appease

Refusing to address significant

Issues, bring genuine resolution.

So tedious the irrelevant excuses

Pitiable pleas for forbearance

Hypocrisy ladled like unpalatable gravy.

The smiling deceit wears away patient

Goodwill, strength of character, and

Willingness to continue in relationship.
