Rebel without a cause and bad to the bone
In his white tight t-shirt and back pocket comb
Oooh well I think you were one real cool dude…
But of course there was more to you than
That ever did meet the eye and although you’ve
Been gone a long, long time your legend will
Never die…
Somewhere east of Eden, IN THE TALL GRASS
OF DREAMS, a scene of a movie screen, I can
Hear your laughter in the wind, you wink at me
And then disappear again somewhere east of Eden
On the cover of another magazine, somewhere
Somewhere east of Eden, IN THE TALL GRASS OF
DREAMS are the scene of a movie screen…
Starring and now showing JAMES DEAN…
Rebel without a cause and bad to the bone
In his red, red jacket and back pocket comb…
I wish I could have met you ‘cuz I bet you were one
Real cool dude…
Still though your legacy lingers…
Bad, bad boy JAMES DEAN…
East of Eden…

Nebulous Dreams

Nebulous Dreams short poem

“Dreams, against a wakening mind, like fleeting clouds, Weaken, vanish, and silently evanesce at daybreak … Nebulous dreams of a land unknown, Wishful hopes of a life unchained, Wistful fantasies of ambitions unbridled. Uncanny fears of a destiny uncertain Persistent

Tall Claims

Tall Claims short poem

You become a chair. A dream sits in you for a graphic detail of pelvis. A trophy? Was it undecorous to present a cadaver walking on the earth? A serial killer wants a plaque on his grave after the verdict.
