I've been writing and selling stories for longer than a lot of folks reading this have been alive. Check Baal Bunny for more!

"If I Spoke Prose, You'd All Find Out/I Don't Know What I Talk About" · 1:02pm July 20th

The first respect that Present lists
Is absolutely key.
No matter what, we all partake
Of one humanity.

Denying that will cross a line
And must provoke rebuke.
To preach that humans don't deserve
Consideration's puke.

Belief that skin or culture must
Determine fate is wrong.
To claim that white is always right's
The opposite of strong.

The Once and Future Jerk · 9:28pm July 18th

Commandments have come and commandments have gone,
Engraved upon stone or dissolved in the mist.
Regardless the language in which they've been drawn,
"Thou shan't be a jerk" is the top of the list.
Ascribed to a god or with secular twist,
The order extends as a cultural norm
Despite what the numberless ages insist:
It proves an impossible deed to perform.

Ballade of Things to Come · 1:42pm July 9th

Aghast for years, it's hard to stay alert,
To find the fortitude the times require.
The fluffy clouds of hope get tinged with dirt,
Become disheveled, call for baling wire
And constant supervision. How I tire
Of gnashing all my teeth, of clenching eyes,
Of shaking heads and long, bewildered sighs.
Perhaps I'll sit for once and fold my arms—
Except instead of current, loathsome lies,
A rainbow future beckons, full of charms.

Prejudiced · 3:39am June 5th

It prickles deep within me: fear
Entangled through my chest.
Whenever people gather near,
I gasp a thinner atmosphere
While looking unimpressed.

Projecting calm is vital: none
Can know the clench I feel.
I squint a glance. Is that a gun?
A badge reflecting noontime sun?
It's getting more surreal.

In school, the kids who punched me? Blonde,
Displaying hearty smiles.
Instinctively, I now respond
With twitches, snorts, and more beyond;
Inside, my heart reviles.

A Non-Pony Poem · 8:49pm March 5th

Technically:

I suppose I should post this using the Baal Bunny account since the poem in question began as an entry in one of the Writeoff contests, but, well, this is the account where I've got the poetry collection...

Ah, the joys of multiple identities...

Naptime! · 6:03pm Dec 25th, 2019

In the last 18 hours or so:

I sang and played guitar at the 4PM and 6PM Christmas Vigil masses, a half hour carol service from 9:30 till 10, a "Mass During the Night" which is what they call the Midnight Mass now since the Vatican lets us do it at 10PM, and an 8AM "Mass at Dawn." So merry et cetera to all, and to all a good "Bounce of the Sugar Plum Fairy."
