Drain in Vain


An acute sensation of falling
for and into a black hole:
a soft focus abyss, otherwise known as bliss.
Or a train wreck, carrying hazardous waste,
something I can look forward to
looking back on with distaste.

Constantly fighting funny familiar feelings of futility,
trying to put the brakes on the morbidity,
but it keeps rolling down the line.
And as I watch it disappear,
life as I have long known it,
becomes all the more precious
and acutely defined.

Hooked on a Feeling

Vital Decline

I marvel at my feelings,
but I don’t trust them.
I’m dazzled by her,
but I don’t trust her either.
I’m not sure that she even likes me.
Which is fine, I don’t like her much either.

I Love You

This death, as opposed to my other deaths,
feels dangerously like spring.
A catastrophic waste of time,
but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Just trying to make a connection…


“At the end of the day, these few fleeting moments
of glory are one’s only reward.”

Perfect Summer Reading

An Acquired Taste that’s for Everybody

These two works of fine poetic literature available from Amazon, among other places:



The fruit of many fruitless years. 126 eight-line poems on the subject of work-avoidance, failure and indolence:



A sequence of mean-spirited love poems with particular respect paid to the institution of marriage. Dispiriting observations, felicitously expressed. A tonic to those of us who are not blissfully content in work and love.

Antiepithalamia III


A sudden deadness
accompanies satisfaction,
and nothing else

A Lover’s Plea

Two people with a stick

I want you to want to give me pleasure.
I want you to be satisfied by my satisfaction.
I am excited by the thought of your being excited by me.
Please understand that these feelings you inspire in me
are a tribute to your qualities.
