Father Bob Holds Court


Messac-era soirée in the Wiegmannkeller:

The quaint Vascetta gypsy shows a touch of class
Tart Nuveti tries to one-up the upside-down Snoopy — what an ass
Surgeon Houck thinks everyone’s blood is blue
But it’s good Father Bob who wins the attention coup

The Kenvil Putters


A climb in the Persian silk tree amidst the sore bees’ hum
Roly balance-cavorting on a wooden cable drum
June hibachi picnic with thunder under foot
Crafting scrap-wood ropy boat models in the old tool hut

The green atop the sandy soil grand for growing veg
Crazy Phillip and hounds stew beyond the sleepy hedge
Shaking at the wisping clouds he paces and he sputters
Nothing more to see here but the furley Kenvil Putters

Fornax in Cælum II: Las Ruinas de la Esquina Cherokee

Eduíno y Arnoldo miran la desolación
que una vez llevaban sus nombres
Deben derramar una lágrima
como los Cherokee antes que ellos

¡Espéreme cielos!
