Oh Death

Poem By Joe Howell

Oh Death please come my way
do not tarry nor delay

Unplug this machine, breathing for me
hindering my leaving, can't you see?

I heard the nurse, they need this bed
they will move me out, when Im dead

Take me in your icy hand
lead me over to the promised land

Oh death don't run a way
I can't wait another day

Childhood Dreams

Sunlight peeps thru closed curtains
like a sleepy child, nodding in - out
yet you sleep. the wave of pre-dawn
passion, renaming lost childhood dreams


he stood six feet tall
bigest man i had ever seen
at age seven, he came into my life
picked me up and put me in a wheelbaro

22 Rifle

It was the summer that i turned 17
I wanted a 22 cal. rifle for my birthday
that was all i thought of, boy i shot a million
invisible rounds at everything from cans

Cold Wind

Hot Summer Day-
heats up everything.

Except this cold wind

When Bells Toll

when bells tolls, lies expire
truth emerges into a right
hate grows into liquid flow
bigotry is swallowed

Cafe Of Broken Dreams

She worked in confortable shoes
with thick soles, polished in hearts
of lovers that beg not to be forgoten
