An Opulently Offensive View of the World

"If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading." - Lao Tzu


Detesting Dinner

Invited to a feast at the neighbor’s home. Why did I agree to this? I feel invisible amongst the more distinguished guests and so I recede into my own thoughts. Lost in my steak. Watching the juices roll down the slope of the plate, blood streaks the enamel pattern. Then comes the crunch of a celery stick breaking through my peace. Then another and another. I try to dismiss the smacking and crunching but each bite drills into my skull. I glance over at the man across from me and wonder how much currency he would give to avoid his own murder, which became more certain by the moment. Dessert cannot arrive soon enough.




Wanderer: A Mistake Haiku

To my love so fair
A promise I could not keep
Gifts could not repair

Halloween: A Haiku

Costumed characters
A promise of sweetened gifts
Trick or treat at night

Love the Sinner

“You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.” – Oscar Wilde

Love the sinner
For I am no
Say the things you can’t
I have no
Do the things you won’t
A life with no
Love me forever
For I am no
