3 tilus on paper back writer

wanna be a paperback writer

no talent



wanna be a paperback writer




wanna be a paperback writer




wanna be a prompster

on a blog

so . . . . .

              {how did I do? a tilus is a poem with 6/3/1 as it’s beats.}

Flung together (can’t ya tell) for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, Tale Weaver #86, September 22: “I wanna be a paperback writer.”


I of night, you of day

Jane Dougherty’s # 43 poetry challenge, trilune, is too complex for me. Of course, a poem with a 3 moon theme was alright as well. This is a night poem, but the three moons mostly only figure in JD’s illustration by ©PhotoMKcray

So here is a free verse on night and day, so to say:


remember meeting in the great black out of ‘04

you no candles, I no batteries

only light the sparkles of luxuria that

zapped between our lips and what these aroused below

then only moans and words of one syllable

til that arrant shaft of light – the scream

you moved so fast, you creature of the day,

you wanted me as your creature of your nights

I am creature of the night, you the day

We shun our heritage

blackout curtains and night shifts

three circles of our moon

conserve our love

preserve our luxuria
