Bald Pate Too

We bought the Bald Pate

Without even

Thinking,

The old boat

Was whispering,

Whispering and

Winking,

She’s given much

Pleasure

And such sweet

Adventure,

We built her a

Business,

To pay back her

Treasures.

October Wind

With the Scorpio Moon

Lurking at 30,

Clive scheming

To retrieve

Nuthin Wong,

Samsung batteries

Exploding in unison,

The October wind

Banging

The be careful gong.

For Christine

If you hadn’t

Come by

I might have died

In that age

Of near insanity,

When moths

Were eaten by doves

And once truth

Even cried,

When lines

Were stuck in bottles

And rhyme

Bogged down in mud,

To this place

Where oceans kiss

The beaches

In an ancient pristine way,

All I know Christine

I love you,

As I’ve done forever

And some days.
