find that most everywhere
there is laughter and fun
with a duty to share

Jimi

by Jem Croucher

And here’s me listening
with nigh on fifty years passed
New sound from Jimi’s sweet guitar

by Harry

Submitted by Frederick Calovich

.

Are there others things that come racing to mind?
Have you been walk-about in a fog or a haze?
Or do you just follow the latest craze?

On Dying In A Mass Shooting

Bloody Chaos

The door swings open
rapid fire storm ensues
my body hurls to the ground

feel the surface both solid and smooth resting in your palm,
know that this salty white chemical mix is the spark of want,
Can’t you feel the pull of desire in the looks we share?
