#NaPoWriMo  poem #14. This Easter's an idle holiday for me, as the whole extended family has only one kid and he just turned 1 the other day. I might as well play Bejeweled, read trope wikis, and write poems...

#NaPoWriMo  poem #12 is my obligatory pagan Easter poem, Easter being originally a pagan holiday dedicated to the goddess of the dawn, whose name in English is in fact Easter. The Christ part came later and doesn't appear in this poem.
The snake of cosmic darkness swallows the invincible sun Three days three nights the sun languishes eclipsed under the earth On the third day he rises from the dead to shine again  The goddess of the dawn  Her ancient name: E...

#NaPoWriMo  poem #9, based on a title I came up with only a few minutes before I wrote yesterday's poem. Once I got the dream vision of a burning bridge falling from a burning sky (in a daydream of course), the poem all but wrote itself.
He burned his first bridge back when he was a little boyHe stole his sister’s toys broke them when she told momHe beat her up like a playground bully he was older  he was bigger  it was his sovereign right   so he said She ne...

#Spanner  Revision 5 #amediting  update: I'm about to end the long period of #amprocrastinating  that began back in February, starting with Chapter 3. Plus: my plan for a radically transformed Chapter 4.
It's been a while since I've done any actual edits on Spanner. Since FAWM began, to be exact. I was so busy writing 28 songs and agonizing over my inadequate singing and playing skills that I dropped the Revision 5 edit altog...

#NaPoWriMo  poem #13 is my obligatory Easter satire poem. Some years ago I heard of the "sport" of Peep tossing. This, as you might have guessed, is about Peep fighting. If only that caught on...

#NaPoWriMo  poem #10. I'm a little behind (busy week) but I have more than enough time to catch up.

This one's a little punny riff on the end of Windows XP.

#NaPoWriMo  poem #8. A confession: I've been cynical about superheroes since the speculative frenzy on superhero comics that raged in the early 1990s and crashed the comics industry not once but twice: in '93 and '96. Ironically, there were comics published back then about the theme of this poem...

Yes, #NaPoWriMo -related, but no, not a poem. Unless you consider it prose poetry, even if it is my normal prose writing style. It's a satire about the smug "marriage" of unintelligible academic poets to corporate raiders with a hunger for cultural elitism.
[Note: I wrote this short story in the midst of writing poems for NaPoWriMo. Nothing annoys me more than the willful obscurity of elitist “artistes” such as the academic poet. This kind of artist really exists only to make cu...

#NaPoWriMo  poem #6. Nothing Buddhist about this poem. This one's about how to become a celebrity through crime, combining many of my most cynical thoughts about celebrity, superheroes, big money, and left-wing terrorists who think they're latter-day Robin Hoods but end up becoming celebrity bad guys instead.
