Introduction to AWPHUL Poetry
Awful doesn't begin to describe Awphul poetry. Awful implies something jaw dropping; Awphul simply means Articulation With the PHonetic Use of Language. That means it uses things like rhyme and meter (gasp) but isn't necessarily traditional. This ebook features four Awphul poems that didn't go over well with other poets as well as a bonus short story as an incentive to suffer through the poetry. AWPHUL poetry is Articulation With the PHonetic Use of Language. It often employs rhythmical patterns that create a musical flow or quality to the work. It is not limited to simple meter and can use complex meter or even varying forms of meter. It isn't random or off-beat like some contemporary poetry and falls in the great divide between the formalists and the contemporary poets. It attempts to stand out from the "accepted" poetry market that has essentially been rejected by the main stream. It is inspired by the "good bad poetry" that doesn't follow the rules but somehow manages to captur
Imagination Roams Wild
A collection of original poems wrote by me during my freshman and sophomore years of high school. These are all original poems I wrote throughout a year. I write what comes to mind or based off memories. A few of my poems are based of some of my favorite memories while the rest are fiction. Imagination is a writers greatest tool, and my imagination roams wild.
When Civil Servants Fail
In a society, where every citizen is a suspected terrorist, where the secret services instrument terror scenarios to emphasize their importance, and where some leading politicians use any means to enrich themselves, we find Mr. Smith and his assistant Eric Gusto. Their efforts are described in 5 stories, in which they for non-idealistic purposes incidentally oppose this trend among civil servants In this book, we are concerned with our security agents, and if the tenor of this description is right, we are then dealing with the greatest terrorists, according to their accomplishments. In contrast, normal citizens are treated as their enemies, so far without justification since we tolerate their actions without noteworthy resistance. Ironically, if you redefine a terrorist from their destruction of civil rights, the biggest terrorists of our time will be found in various governments. But when the ministers of the interior (home secretaries) actually (and exceptionally) defend human ri

My Thoughts (selected poems 3)
Saint Virgin Peter
A collection for everyday life. Poetry book number three of pain and isolation. Another day in this time today. Come see me bleed. Cry the wind in winter sins. Dark blue skies. Days come and go. Falling down a crowded world. It's morning once again. Let me be your sun. Morning falls once again. My blood will burn,. My face. Open books to see my pain. Reality killed the one that is real. Rip my flesh. Sad and sadder still we get. Seven sick and lonely days. Sick for love. Silver angels dance in circles. Simple little toys. Sky grows cold.

I titled this book "Half Baked" because in a Filipino folk tale of how man was created, man was made out of clay and put in an oven. The ones that weren't cooked all the way were Europeans, and the brown ones were Filipinos. My mom is from the Philippines and my dad is of German descent, so I thought this title was a perfect fit.

The Floating Gull: A Poem
This poem was written after a peaceful walk on the beach. As I was walking I was mesmerized by the way the seagulls easily floated through the air once they lifted themselves off the ground with their powerful wings. These are my observations of the seagulls of the sky.

Oh to be...
If I was me, the real me, would you see me? If I was me, the me I could be, would you hear me? Oh to be… Me!
What emerges out of wanderings ? Sometimes it is poetry. We experience the weaves of life in depth, which touch every breath of ours but still elude us and we keep wandering. Poetry carves itself out of physicality of emotions and complexity of structures in the most simplest ways.
End Of Poe-Hatery Era
Many people don't know that I started to write back in 2002. Back then I was filled with alot of anger and frustration. My life wasn't good. It's been 10 years since I started to write and my life has changed alot. I'm in a better place now. Many people don't know that I started to write back in 2002. Back then I was filled with alot of anger and frustration. My life wasn't good. It's been 10 years since I started to write and my life has changed alot. I'm in a better place now.So I have decided to release this release calling it "End Of Poe-Hatery Era" because when I first started to write I was told "what you write isn't poetry" so I decided to get creative and crafty with the name and call it Poe-Hatery. But like I said since that time I have grown and I have decided today is a good day to close that chapter of my life.It's time for me to move on. It takes alot for someone to move on so this is a big step for myself. I hope that will accept this release and understand where I am

The Caseworker's Memoirs
Malcolm was losing touch with the world; a retired counsellor and recently widowed, he lived each day sat at his desk, watching the world pass him by. That’s until his daughter gave him a leather-bound notebook. She encouraged him to write about times long past that he shared with his wife, but as dreams of his previous patients take hold of him, he has no choice but to share his experiences. "I feel old. Terribly old. I no longer recognise the man, whose face is filled with such sadness and unfulfilled ambitions, glaring back at me. It's the shadow of me; a darker, duller shade that shells inside a lonely old man."... And so begins The Caseworker's Memoirs.

Oh dear me! God bless my soul.
A poem, concerning what I feel many adolescents are going through due to social pressures.
Tim Ellis is one of the UK’s most exciting environmental poets. Ellisian Fields is a selection of 43 of the best poems he’s written over his 20 year career. Some are popular but previously unpublished performance poems, some are competition winners, and others samples from his three collections. An essential introduction to the work of this witty yet authoritative writer. Although we stare until our eyes go fuzzynothing stirs, no whisker, not a nostril.The pond has want of life but we live hopeful:the fringing sedge is dense, the water scuzzyand these impediments can well excuse theabsence of movement. At least we have a photo,a snap displaying capybara profiles,unmistakable if somewhat muzzy.A quarter hour ago the pair revealedtheir forms in a dash between pools but now they’re sleepers sunk in a swamp. Take note: Ellisian Fieldsare wild and tangled places. If you’ve failedto glimpse a twitch of life look closer, deeper.You never know what treasures that might yield.To many people

Many new poems and selections from three full length collections make this an excellent introduction to the author. There is something for everyone in this book. The clear open poems have a glow that seems to strengthen on re-reading. The settings are mostly in Maine, Hawaii, India, and Thailand. New and selected poems make an excellent introduction to a fine American poet.Dixieland piano late at night in a pine woods … an elderly woman's blue dress … a postal clerk dispensing stamps, packaging, and devotion … a ring and a prayer thrown into the River Ping … a Thai lover on the back of a Honda 125 … a man singing in a sidewalk machine shop … an unexpected death …The author's recent poems were written in Maine, Thailand, and Australia. They continue and extend the work in his three full length collections (each generously sampled here).
