Halloween Scrooge

Forget Halloween!
All those begging, grubby hands
Outstretched for candy!

Disturbing power.
A field of corpses: followers
Who drank the Kool-Aid.

Every clicking key
Pounded with fingers of rage . . .
Brave behind email.

Dressing up in Mama's clothes.

Your personal life starts to

Scurrying 'round my table
Trying to take food.

Smirks, whispers, laughter
'Round the office coffee pot:
Drama's breeding ground.

You are a vampire.
You drain me of life and love
And leave me empty.

Mocks me with each paper jam.
I have printer rage.

Fish Bowl

My skull's a fish bowl
Holding captive, swimming thoughts
Yearning to be free.

She said with despair,
"I think I'm an atheist."
Sorrow filled the room.

Drifting in and out.
An antihistamine haze.
I hate allergies.

Time Goes By

Tipsy, happy hour
Spent reminiscing with friends.
Where did the time go?

Tall, lithe waterfowl
Contemplates the placid pond
At sunset's advent.

I'm so furious.
Please stop jerking me around.
I have had enough!

Tivo won't connect at all,
Darn you, DVR!

I'm California dreamin'
About words of love.

Lips curve into smiles.
Animals form with each twist.
Thank you, balloon man!

Nature's gentle reminder
That time marches on.

Your silly, sweet smile
Fills my heart with joy and love,
Precious, little child.

Trembling little friend,
Afraid of the loud thunder,
Hides in the bathroom.

In an elevator car.

A panic attack
Tried hard to choke me on the
Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
