There were angels flying over head.
I thought them to be man-birds in my dreams.
With pretty colors and long wings.
It’s a blur, I must be mad.
Someone commit this crazy man.
Tie him to a hospital bed.
Pad his room and throw away the key.
Explain to me, oh please!
These visions that haunt me!
Was it a man or was it a bird that I see?
Maybe they were angels over me.



The mighty tyrannosaurus brick is on the prowl.
It hunts at all hours.
Gobbling up the feeble man humans night and day.
Man humans being killed daily by the turn-style of death.

There’s another poor soul being swallowed by the mouth of its glass teeth.
Jaws opening wide with a sound of a mechanical whir.
Doors swooshing chomping as the man humans enter.

Some manage to escape its clutches to never return.
And some never come out being slowly digested in the bowels of bills and debt.
This beast needs to feed you see.
For if there are no man humans to feed on then tyrannosaurus brick will become extinct.
As long as they get their nutrition called work.
The tyrannosaurus brick will continue to roam the earth and gobble souls.

Peering at life through a window at the black and white breezy city.
Watching people rush and sway in the ocean of pavement and sidewalks like waves crashing along the curbs.
For me the scene is still like the ice cube in my drink.
Cool glass of water on the left and a hot coffee on the right.
The scene frozen in time in this city of mine.

International Motorcycle Show 2017 Review

In the winter months of Chicago there’s not much riding to be done, so instead we fantasize and dream of that next adventure riding our cycles.

World of Chocolate

  Sensory overload! From sight to smell to taste. All were in full swing this evening over at Chicago’s World of Chocolate. When I first walked in I noticed the delicious preparation by the feature artists in this world. Their feverishly scramble to get the visual right before opening to the public. It was an organized chaos in motion. All that was needed was some background music of the Marching of the Ants.
