Hey you, come here… closer… a little bit closer… yeah, right there… check game, baby… I’ve got three eyebrows. Ha! You ain’t ready.

Hello, world!! Ain’t nothing shaking, but the fat folks, and I’ve got a message in a bottle. That, plus I got shipped from East Texas way over to West Texas. I need to get some mail; meet some new people before I lose my mind. This place is the poster child for one of those constipation commercials.

“They” say that the pen is mightier than the sword, so then I’m about to rock it with a WMD. Boom!! I’m on mission and I want you come journey with me. You can call me MO Betta; because the more I’m with you, the better we get. Let go of your inhibition and let me put some of this glide up in your stride; a dip up in your hip. I don’t give a damn if you’re the freak of the week. I wanna be your back door man. Be ready to laugh hearty and cry together, though, because I’ve got so much to give to you, my dear.

Say what?!? You need some intellectual stimulation?! In that case… I’m an astute, gregarious, and indubitably affable fellow. I’ve got plenty of self-depreciating humor and acid wit to go around. I like to call it… character. How you like me now?! Come funk with me one time. I am because you are.

April’s Fool

A beauty that renders the ignescent heart
If only a man could ever hope to behold a sight
Pulses quicken aflame, a fluttering start
Suddenly ending this darkness with her light

Hips that undulate as natural as the swell of the tide
Lips apart, a hark of angels, bedazzling smile
She spoke with a voice full of grace and style
Genuine laughter like hers can be nothing but bonafide

Eyes that sparkle like the starry midnight skies
In a league all her own, sweet as a peach
A confident, intelligent, sophisticated lady
Dignified and divine, whoa is she…

Can’t eat, can’t sleep, can’t think
The only thought is you, waxing poetic
Perhaps it’d been better by hoodwink
Than to be left standing alone, waning apologetic

Many have lain themselves before her path
Only to succumb to their lovers’ scorn
Devil to pay, this heart is nothing but torn
Fear the Furies fury, or suffer their wrath

Remain Stoic, for the world shall not hear your cries
Come and gone, a void created by her breach
Luminous by design, yet couldn’t be more shady
A stolen promise, a broken trust; woe is she…

Under the Bodhi Tree

Gazing upward into the great blue yonder
It doesn’t take much the mind to wander
Beyond this world out into the vast expanse
Just how small we are, one must ponder

Shifting in the wind are the sands of time
Endless dunes of illusion, difficult to climb
Chasing success and desire will never yield much
Letting go of the ego is a meridian that’s prime

Live life with compression, breather in calm stability
Seek dignity in adversity, be humbler in simplicity
Forgive and be free; breathe out to be freer
Right understanding enables the path to tranquility

Compassion will take away the bitterness
Sincere generosity leads us to happiness
Attach to nothing and take full refuge
May all beings be filled with loving kindness
