Years ago I stopped writing

For fear that I might offend

Or give someone the wrong idea,

Many years later after a poke from

An Australian Goddess’s pen,

A Kundalini Awakening,

I started writing again,

 I find I do offend some

I give some the wrong idea,

For a moment I thought

Perhaps I should stop,

But only for a brief moment

Because I realized I don’t control

What goes on in your head,

Should you see your woman

Dancing in the lines,

Maybe she is,

Maybe she’s not,

The solution is simple,

Stop reading.

Late September Morning

In the spring

Of a late September

Saturday morning,

In the early autumn sun,

People already pre-bundling

For the nasty North Pacific

Winter weather

That has yet to come,

A woman walks by

Both palms wrapped

Around a paper cup

Of coffee,

A dreamy holding a

Penis look on her face,

An old man salutes

The cenotaph and

Waves at the flag,

Picks up some garbage

Out of the dying flowers,

The simple sweet things

Of a late September morning.

Wish You Were Here

Nacime stopped in

Grabbed the Seagull

To work a little

On a bit of Pink Floyd,

Out of thin air

A long haired stranger

With a manicured beard

Took the guitar

And played a little bit crazy,

Played like a man possessed,

The Seagull is still smiling

A day later.

Letter To A Lover

Yes I saw you naked

Or was it shadows

On the wall,

Sunlight in the

Tree tops,

Rainbows in the


Yes I heard you love me

Or was it wind

In the midnight


Thunder in the

Grey clouds

As lightening

Jumps and dances,

Yes I know I love you

It’s written

In the sea,

If you can’t

See the letters

They’re clear

Enough for me.

Alone Together

A long haul trucker

From the mainland

Stopped in for a chai

And a Montreal Smoked

Meat Sandwich,

Out of the blue

The gorgeous woman

With the long dark hair

Came in again,

This is like Montreal

The trucker said,

Do you mind if I

Sit at an outside table

And just listen to the music,

It’s like a coffee shop in Montreal,

I couldn’t help but step

Into his dream and

Spend some time

Alone with the

Gorgeous woman,

In a coffee shop,

In Montreal.

Pussy Burn

What did you do

To your lips ?

I was sipping

From a lotus cup

And didn’t realize

How hot

It could really be.

Looks like

 A pussy burn to me.

I’ve always had

A thing for cats,

I suppose if you

Get too close

To a Wichien-maat

It might happen,

But I was sipping

From a lotus cup.

Looks like a

Pussy burn to me.

Falling in love

With you

Was easy,

After all I’ve known you

Since you were a kid,

Sometimes I think

This love must be

A carry over from

Other lifetimes,

How else could

You explain the

Intensity, the ease,

The comfort,

Falling in love

With you

Was easy,

Like a child

Unable to resist

Picking a gorgeous flower,

Poking a finger into the honey pot,

Sliding a hot cookie off of the tray,

Falling in love

With you

Was easy,

Falling out of love

With you

Is impossible.
