Going Home

Heading home is likePlunging into a pool of memoriesThe old photos, the dusty bike,Makes one smile, unwittingly As a child,I bet I was very wildI sat in my crib, laughingParading my toothless grin, flailingChubby arms, spilling food everywhereLike a sprinkler, targets anywhere My first prom is forever framed,In a golden, rosette border, somewhere far awaySparkling

The Cell Phone

Pitter patter,Don’t look out of the window, childThe world has gone wild.For that isn’t the sound of rain.Those are fingers sprinting on the fast lane.It is not in a stadium.The lane is on the cell phone screen.No victor on the podium,It’s just a bunch of texting teens.I must warn you before I proceed.That child, the

Candy

Candy,The velvet sweetness,Of sugarcane fibre that’s full of richness.Be wary though,Too much candy can hurt you thorough. Candy,The devil’s mallet,The cause of the hole in your wallet.Candies are dangerous,Try at your own risk.

The Grand Confusion

Do you define it as courage?Or is it a kind of outrageSparking off the blood-hued flaresIgniting all particles of wrath present in the airCurses etched on the strips of little paperNailed into the cloth flesh of gnarled voodoo peopleAs the fire nibbles it up, leaving the edges grilled and charred.Or does it spread a smile
