He is stuck
Behind the wall
Between the fire place
And the brick facade
There is nothing to be done
A fatal falling
From the top of the roof
Down through the opening
Hell’s deadly crevice
No escape
Hear him clawing
Desperate and alone
There is no savior
No light to break the darkness
Only the waiting
Hours then minutes and seconds of breath
Wings slap in impotence
Weakly raging
Life’s brutal passing
Death’s quiet embrace.

(Previously published in Lynx Eye, Spring '99, Vol. VI, No.2; Fusion Ink, Issue 2, September 2000; Poet's Porch, Aug.2001)
Laurence Overmire




Truths cannot be denied without consequence
Wounds fester from within

Until the body, crippled and diseased

A torrent of anguish released
Upon an unwitting world.

(Previously published in Boloji, Apr.2003)
Laurence Overmire



Sunrise At Garibaldi

The timbers rise out of the bay
On a clouded, sunlit morning
Reflection’s pier in the water
An old weather-worn shack
Five white windows to see the day
The seagull dips and glides

This photograph makes
A stop of time

I want to get off
Walk the platform
Drop my line in the water
And wait
Watch, the sun’s slow
Mount from valley to crest, hear
The wind telling tales:
Of wise old men
And the daunting sea.

(Previously published in Blue Fifth Review, Summer 2003)

Techno Man

I'm plugged in. wigged out. logged on.
To the wall.
Through windows of intercyber space
Tele-marketed on airwaves of
High-tech no resolution
Toastered in a micro-waved oven
Ears popped corn-wise
My electric eyes spin in sockets
Juiced like a jingled julep
Sucked through the jargon
Of video laser loserlips
Played for a lackey
By big no-name hucksters who think
I have no will of my own.
But if I pull the plug
Will self and soul re-boot
Or just be
(Deleted) .

(Awarded Honorable Mention in the Barnes and Noble Fahrenheit 451 Contest, March 2004)
