To Die For

SF downton IMG_2022Mango Tango
Strawberry Cherry
Orange à l’orange
Cherries outrageous
Finally, Crème de menthe

What kind of beverage is fitting for the end of the World?
At the edge of the Universe
In a café.
When the stars fold in on themselves

La cerise
With whipped cream clouds
A dense overhang of
Mousse au chocolat

How to begin at the beginning
When you know the end is
El final
From the start

Isn’t The End always delicious
Is the final note of the ending
Lingering as the sweetest

Will the last Rose to bloom in Paris
Show the reddest petals?
In due course, Ma’dam
Or Mademoiselle?

Does one serve Malbec
Hors d’oeuvres
Can a disaster be plural?
Is this the end of both of us?

The finest and highest shall
The final point
Frosting Freezes

Fireworks on the horizon
Wedge a lime
Our hours shall pass

In the
End is near
Port-of-call on this cruise

At The Oscars
Your name is not
In the envelope
At the end of an interminable
Carpet of red.

l’esprit -youthful and nubile
Everlasting color fades fast
All things end

Its all good
Frosting on the Icing
Let them eat cake
The French Guillotine

Your finest crystal
at the edge
Sur la Table

La pièce de résistance
L’Arc du Triomphe
Chocolate covered ants
On a toothpick

Is finery theft?

grâce à dieu
It’s you!
You’ve come to meet me
My End is Due.

Deadlines, dead ends,
The final sobs
of a grieving mother

Permit me
Pleasantries and
Pleasant motifs

Absence and Absinthe


The murky love of chocolate
I bid you adieu


A Bird-of-Paradise. Is there any other kind? An Azul cloud of Butterflies Ascending like confetti in reverse. A Weeping Willow Grasps its murky base. While, on the other side, A haphazard picket fence. A dog barks, And then withdraws. In the absence of an enemy not seen, A heartfelt silence ensues none the wiser. Encompassing […]

My Chandelabra

My chandelabra Shanked up in Shanty Town A damsel in Red Dress Slays a dragon in distress And the precipice goes down. Fiddling in Fig’s Awake I finally mistook a mistake for my error, a note’s surprise I surmise my misery to your longevity. A thousand splinters are you And shades of grass in this […]

La LLuvia Eternal

La lluvia era una mancha borrosa El lago era ancho, y azul profundo Por un largo rato Las gotas estaban aplastando La superficie Como fuese polvo pero líquido tambien Estaban arrancando a mí mismo El sentimiento de paz Antes de mí mismo El color azul por completo Como una pintura hecho por angeles No se […]

La música de las esferas

La música de las esferas Está flotando sobre Cielo y Infierno El color azul Está aplastando al infinitud Por supuesto que esté bien Y sus antepasados también La mayor fortuna Estará aqui para Usted La infinitud del azul hondo Como un suspiro De impaciencia El rastro del cielo Un trozo de la perfección Patrones de […]

It’s Not What You Think

Poem: Fiction -by James Legare 6-10-16 If we are all slaves then we are all equal. Nothing succeeds like success. I recall a random conversation I had during the 90’s with a businessman while riding BART in the Bay Area. “Corporations will rule the world and soon you will not have the freedoms you take […]
