Hear Ye. Hear Ye. Here we
propose to posit prose poetry,
forming forms of continuous connectivity
to communicate considerable
contemplative reflectivity.

Simply put, we pose this where
prose poetry is what you'll hear
when wondering where the time went
while reading such rhyme wonderments
as oft we've wrought, and revealed thusly;
each whit of wit written Hieronymously.

Patriots Day

You may run, but you cannot Hyde,
so park it here, and share the ride
vicariously, as Boston's Globe
projects upon your frontal lobe.

Just the facts, ma'am. Just the facts. 
Yesterday I wore short slacks,
and knew I needed a new shirt. See, 
the one I'd worn was torn and dirty, 
so since I'm not a real bright fellow, 
I picked a tight light shirt, quite yellow 
in fact. It acts as an alert 
to passers by. Why? My new shirt 
illuminates my gait, and jogs 
the sight of those who drive in fogs. 

There are things I cannot say 
due to events of yesterday. 
I cannot say that you should run 
for love, or money, or just for fun. 
I cannot say where you should go 
to get away from all you know.
I cannot say who, what, why, how 
you go. I surely don't know, now. 
All that I can say as one 
runner is, I have to run. 

Nimble minds, accumulate. 
Cumulonimbus clouds crowd the sky. 
Runners fly by, staccato cadenced,
as sweet sweat fragrances the air.
Somewhere on the ground, a sound 
stops time in its tracks, and traces of faces 
are drawn on dented cement pavements. 
Curb your enthusiasm. Time marches on. 

#Goodbye Me

Stop by me a moment now, 
for thinking past. Remember how 
you were before. You wore love, sent 
by listening along, a covenant 
of cemented sounds of soul, 
bound unto the heart you stole, 
and wore uncaringly on your sleeve. 

Take every thought you bore, and leave 
unfettered, flawless, falling. Falling fast, 
as if the gift for thinking past 
were passed between us, unseen somehow. 
So, stop. Buy me a moment. Now, 
afford this rhyme some time, repeating 
every word hashtagged, worth tweeting. 

Standards & Practices

Read me like a stolen passage. 
Plagiarized within this message 
is a wheel of steel I ride on 
right up front. I am a guidon 
lightning rod, though oddly worded. 

Standing out, I look absurd. Did 
you just see the 'me' I mention, 
or do boring words sow tension 
to your brow, like how you worry 
when you're in a real big hurry? 

I guide on high. I rely on my guidon 
to be by my side, and provide what men died on 
behalf of. The staff of my standard stands tall for me, 
offering all those who call a glimpse of what you see. 

This Is Not A Poem

This is not a poem. Please stop reading. I'm a bore. 
If you should continue, you'll be needing time to snore.
Although I keep on writing, you're invited to ignore 
the rhymes, for time is passing, and so far I've written four
lines. Your mind is mine now, as we head toward the door
to where your staring witness shows my fitness for no more,
or less than this confessionary sharing from my core. 

Commercial Appeal

I can't stand my crooked teeth.
The ones up top are underneath
my nose. Suppose my proboscis
weren't big. No pig would sniff like this.

No snout about the size of mine
would grace the face of any swine;
nor forehead gleeming, seeming wide
compared to where my hair is tied
in knots with snot, ear wax, and turds.

I'm gruesome, in so many words,
and hate to see me say sometimes
I hate to wait, so make these rhymes
compound my sounding off here, ranting
sick with all the sycophanting
phrases made today, somehow,
I hate that I must end this now.

In my pictures, you can see
someone much like Alfred E.
Neuman - human, worry free,
& MAD as Hell, quite obviously.

Understanding Trump

The English word Trump derives from the Italian word Trionfi, a 15th century Italian card game derived from a 14th Century Italian poem, I Trionfi, by Francesco Petrarch. The Italian word Trionfi itself derives from the Latin word Triumphus, which means 'triumphant victory procession'Trionfi was the game for which Tarot cards were designed, and the numbered Trump cards in a Tarot pack depict a 'triumphant victory procession', the kind of 'triumphant victory procession' about which epic poems, like I Trionfi, are written. They also make an excellent, fabulous, really big, big 'House of Cards', and I mean really, really, Yuge!

Jesus says, 'This Trump's a Fool.
Please forgive him. It's not cool
to jump on Trumps. In fact, it's senseless,
since this Trump's trump card, Forgiveness,
seen here as per Hiero's hero,
shows how we know a Trump Zero:

Portrayed as empty, a simpleton in suspended reality,
he's a co-conspiring victim of synchronicity;
like Janis Joplin sang about in 'Me and Bobby McGee',
so Foolishly prospecting for possibility,
while trusting in the Mysteries of Providential Divinity.

Acknowledged for accomplishments, now time is on your side.
Strive to be objective, and avoid what will offend.

It's important to do what you love. It's love, for heaven's sake!
Keep conversations personal, and humorous to feel.

An opportunity approaches to accomplish an important task,
and it requires commitment to gain rewards for which you've asked.

but trust will surely follow once you protect your private place.
There are those who challenge themselves to exceed personal bests,
cooperatively performing head and shoulders above the rest;
stirred to excel by cheerers on to rise to the occasion
aroused, engaged, and inspired by adulation and ovation.
In friendly competition, rewards for all who participate.
It's exciting once you realize that it really never is too late.
You save the day, you're a hero, but it's not about fame and praise.

-XIX- ;

Environments brimming with kindness; abundant care and support;
everyone's looking out for each other in concern of a friendly sort.
You're a force to benefit the people - a tool, a service, a plan.

Elevated in warm recognition of that which you know is sublime.
Act on your passion's conviction. Continue to articulate.

You have time to get ready, but can't win if you won't risk the play.
Your environment demands effort that pushes you right to the edge.

Sometimes it's difficult to just admit that all of us are brothers.

Look within and recognize that part of you resents;
for that's the thing that keeps you stuck in this cycle of events.
Generally, you move along taking the better and the worse,
but part of you is stuck on pause, resisting closure of this verse.
Scrutinize your attitude. Is it prompted by resistance?
Examine your hesitation. It will strengthen your insistence .
Soon comes a chance to realize a dream, efforts about to bear fruit.
Be sensible, lest you discover the project cost all your loot.

softly out? No doubt some gum's 
flavor, savored while it's chewed, 
sticks unto a shoe, eschewed. 

Prized Boobies

Dear Ms. Tits, ma'am. By your leisure, 
boobies bring both food and pleasure 
to my mind. You'll find me aroused 
by boobies, when they come unbloused. 

 No man is an island Formosa their lives. 
Some have got friends. The others have wives 
to fill spaces where friends would have been 
had nary they tarried to marry. Amen.

Marriage Rites

Marriage is a Union, Man.
Man means you. A Human can
Woo - Sue for the affection of
another Man. So Woo, Man. Love
simply shows Man knows and cares,
no matter who, man or woman, stares
queerly, clearly understanding
Equality. What's so demanding?
No one here will ask or tell,
'cause we know Cowards, like Noel.

Stuck Up

I'm stuck up Hi; stuck in your ear. 
These words reflect an atmosphere 
of 'stuckupness', I guess it's called. 
I'm so stuck up, you'd be appalled 
at all the sticky stuck up stuff 
stuck here upon my sleeve and cuff. 

Like buggers wiped when snot descends, 
my stuckupness often offends. 
I'm stuck up Hi, like on a shelf. 
I reach to preach about myself 
in terms that worms can comprehend, 
since worm food soon will be my end. 

To end, I send this rhyme to task; 
stuck on the wall, or up your [...] Ask 
me now just how I knew 
to stick with this till you were through? 

Leaves of Grass

Before this gets any more hectic, 
realize that my style is eclectic. 
Currently, I think verse 
as I read, write, rehearse.
Then I sing my body electric. 

I'll accede to fate for my fault. 
I littered this lettered assault 
with reference to deference 
and poetic preference, 
'cause when I think Whitman, it's Walt. 

So consider these limerick jokes in 
a way one could say is, well, 'spoken' 
by one known as Hi, 
and then you'll know why 
I use 'Leaves of Grass' for my tokin'.

Phoenix Rising

There's a Phoenix in my tree!
So red, its head! My eyes can see
its beak! It's speaking out, and saying
things in singing ways! It's playing
sounds around our heads, and for us
with an awesome Cardinals' chorus,
melodies in C, and B flat.
Hear me wishing you could see that.

Now Phoenix tears descend my cheeks
for you, to whom this message speaks
of Love Out Loud, and in proud words praising
both boy and girl flags unfurled, and raising.

Rainbows reign, unfettered, and flawless.
Fearless, clearly. Love is the Law. Bless
you who sneeze. Please, take my hanky.
Blow your nose, and just say thanks. See
not the knot, yet know our binding.
Blinded by the light, I'm finding
my fingers linger longer when touching
keys like these, while the birds and such sing.
