  69.     

Billy the Sixteen-Year-Old Kid

I’m a Video Kingpin, a Dangerous Dude
A Carnival Killer, I am
The Game and The Game is
Me

To vanquish my anguish I kill
Will kill, all kill, must kill
Down

Face to face my enemies meet
Race no face in cyber-space
Blast

All sense—ding, ding, ding! ! !
My anger implode ex-plode
BOOM!

Game’s over. I win.
You lose.
Jack.

  70.     

Birth (senryu)

Tiny heart beat new
cradled in awkward tenderness
learning one-to-one


(Previously published in Poems Md, Apr 2008)

  71.     

Bitter sweet (senryu)

bitter, sweet, lover
happy, sad, impossible
tragedy of hearts

  72.     

Black Jet

Fly
Like a bomb over head
Melted metal cockpit
World spinning round a blood blue sky
Dive
__into memory
____Deep
_____into dream
______Die
_______in the fire
________of a cold infant eye…

The smoke surrounds us
Seeming always, the burn of the wreckage
The truth yet obscured by a lie.
