Jacket Weather (a Halloween poem)

The leaves are starting to fall.
Jacket weather is finally here.
A smile appears on every kid and even adult who refuses 
to grow up as Halloween costumes and decorations fill up 
the store aisles and neighborhood shops.
Classic horror movies splash on the TV screen at mid-night.
Ghosts, Goblins, Devils, and Witches.
Vampires, Werewolves, Mummies, and other 
haunting things that give us fright.
Entertain our fear of the unknown as 
we scream in delight.

There's Just Something About Hank (New Poem)

Country music, I normally don't listen to it.
The only Country music that I actually like is that 
of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings.
Hank Williams Sr. on the other hand is a different story.
At  first I thought his voice was a little bit too twangy.
But after awhile it starts to sink in.
You start to realize the beauty in it.
You feel it and know it.
There's something real about it.
That's when you start to listen to it again.

Happy Devil (New Poem)

Why should we fear the darkness?
Embrace the true nature of man and woman.
Total Freedom.
Complete Creative Passion.
There is no need to hide.
All of us, together.
Finding knowledge in the ways of living.  

(Dedicated to Anton LaVey founder of the Church Of Satan)

Comic Books And The Art Of....(Mini-Blog Essay)

Well I thought I would cut back on a few of my comic book subscriptions.  Nope....

As it turns out I added a shit load more to my current comic book subscription pull list.....Thanks DC! (insert a sarcastic tone of voice here)  Yeah, I think that was already implied Captain Obvious.  First off let's with Marvel comics.  The Amazing Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite super heroes  so I will continue to keep on reading it no matter what.  As for Daredevil I've been on and off through out the years.  Currently I'm subscribed to the latest issue which I've really enjoyed so far.  The Hulk I started reading in 2014 and really liked it a lot.  As for The Totally Awesome Hulk I read the first issue and thought it was total crap.  But then I read a few up coming previews of the current series and it looked promising.  So I decided to give it another try. I'm so glad that I did.  Now I'm totally loving the new Hulk. Ant-Man I just recently started to get into and like it so far. Doctor Strange is another one that I'm a bit new to and I'm really liking it so far.  (The word of the day is: so far)  Now to a few one shots, on goings, and mini series.  (Archie Meets The Ramones, Broken Moon: Legends of the Deep, Death Force, Island 731, Moonshine, Flash Gordon: Kings Cross).  All of these are new to me and should be good based on the comic book preview descriptions and art work that I've seen....keeping fingers crossed.  And now to DC comics.  The Flash, Batman, Justice League and Aquaman I will always continue to read no matter what. The current series of each one that I've read so far is truly amazing and brilliant, everything is perfect all around.  The writing, the artwork, the feel of it, you know just....everything. Green Arrow I've been reading on and off.  At the moment I'm reading the current series and I'm enjoying it.  A few months ago DC finished up a Swamp Thing mini series that I really liked a lot.  That reminds me about a comic book series from Image comics that I was reading called Black Magick.  I'm not sure if the series was canceled or maybe they're just taking a break from it but I hope it comes back soon.  Now if the Atom from DC comics comes back again that would be really great.  I just recently added Hellblazer and Deathstroke to my current pull list.  I'm looking forward to reading both of them.  They both look freaking awesome. Okay....that's it so far.  I hope you enjoyed reading this mini-blog essay about my obsession with comic books.  
Come back soon!

The Dangerous Poet (New Poem)

Can poetry hurt you?
Can it make you go insane?
Can it destroy your soul?

Noooo!! (New Poem)

The first day back to work after a very long and relaxing vacation is always the hardest.
You don't want to get up after the alarm goes off. 
(You just don't).
But you do anyway because well....because you have to.
The drive to work is a mind numbing blur.
Yeah, I know.  
(It sucks).
Then as you walk towards the entrance to your 
work place it begins.  
Here it comes.  
(Get ready).
Welcome back to....WORK!!!

Miles Away (A Vacation Poem)

Miles away from work and home.
Big ocean waves.
Hot sun.
Lots of rum and coke.
A perfect summer vacation with great food and fun times.
Not wanting this to end.
This feeling.
This place.
This nice little get away from it all.

Thoughts Of Summer (New Poem)

We meet again.
Warm summer day.
Resting in the shade.
A night filled with fireflies and soft cool breezes.
A cold drink in one hand and no worries at all.

Tuesday....again (New Poem)

At one time I believe I've written a poem about Tuesday.  
So here's another one.  (If by chance I am mistaken about writing a poem about Tuesday then this will be the first one).

So here it is....

Yesterday it  was bright and 
sunny, but not today.
Today the darkness of rain clouds cover 
the sky in gray and black.  
As the rain continues to pour 
down upon the Earth.

Monday (New Poem)

(It's a short poem)

Another Monday.
Another year of broken 
New Year's resolutions.
Another day of 
endless bullshit.

Don't Look At The Clock (New Poem)

It's a death trap.
Slowly killing us all.
That damn clock.
That damn clock on the wall.
Laughing at us as the hands move by in slow motion.
Never moving forward.
Even moving backwards so it seems.
Damn You!!
Damn You!!
Damn You!!
Stupid clock on the wall.

(Dedicated to the clock on the wall at work)

The Blanket (New Poem)

Wrapped up in a blanket.  
No matter what kind of weather it is outside or what time of year.  You will find me on the couch wrapped up in a blanket. For that is the way of things.  That's how I roll.

(Just call me Linus....you know from the Charlie Brown comic strip also known as 'Peanuts')
