April 30 In Search of America 1975 – Hitch hiking Tales

When I was young and foolish

Broke and stubborn

I hitchhiked across the USA


Started in Salt Lake City

Where my greyhound bus pass

Was stolen


The station manager

Could have helped me

But refused to do so


Threaten to call the cops

When I grabbed my bags Without the stolen tags


I said

Go ahead

But I am so out of here


Wondered about Salt Lake City

Went to a bar

Found I had to buy my booze

Next door

And they would mix it for me


Had to order food too

After a bloody Mary

And a burger


I walked about town

Saw the Mormon Temple


Finally, about 3 pm

It was time to hit the road

Did not look back


Ended up in Cody Wyoming

Got a room shower

Steak beer

Using my rapidly depleted cash Spent 25 dollars

Money really went far

Back in those days


A band of professional

Communist agitators

Gave me a ride

To Des Moines


Lots of weed, booze

And politics later

Got off the road

Slept outside


Next day

A beautiful woman

Drove me to near Chicago

In a red mustang


Might have been

The girl in the song

Took it easy

Digging her vibe


She invited home

But was not sure

If her estranged husband

Would welcome me


So, I am being foolish

And inexperienced with women

Did not go to her place


And always regretted

That I had lost

My chance that day


Then on to Chicago

Several rides later

Visited friends


Hit the road again

A series of uneventful rides

With truckers

And others


And a week later

I ended in New York City


Slept along the way

In cars

In truck stops

In highway rest stops


Always moving

Always going

None stop talking

And lots of free weed

And beer

And conversation


One more memorable ride

Occurred outside Albany

On my return to Chicago


A middle age creepy looking man

Picked me up

In a brand-new Cadillac


He was he said a dynamite deliverer

For the Mafia

Went to various places

To blow up shit


He hated a lot of people

Particularly hippies from California

And Jewish people


Looking at me to confirm

That I was both


I told him that I lived in New York

And had never been to California

And although I might have looked Jewish

As I what was called back in the day

A “Jewfro”


I was not Jewish

Many years later I discovered

That I am indeed part Jewish

But then I did not know

And I felt a bit of strategic information

Might keep me alive


Then I realized that he was just jiving with me

And we relaxed

And he pulled out some weed

And beer

And we mellowed out


But I believe that he really was with the mob

Perhaps not a dynamite dealer

A real made Italian made mafia member


By Chicago

I had enough

I called my Dad

Told him what had happened


Wanted a ticket home

And he sent me a ticket

And 500 dollars

And I went home


I told him I would tell him

My tales some day

But never did


I learned so much

About my fellow Americans

And the strange vibe

That was 1975


And now it is too late

But I wanted to finally

Tell the world


Of my hitchhiking tales

In search of America 1975


April 29— Looking Out My Window


Looking out my window

In Incheon

What did I see

The neighboring apartment buildings

Obscured by the April rains


And yellow dust of early Spring

And in the distant the mountains

Aflame with spring colors

Beckoning me outdoors


Looking out my window

In Oregon

What did I see

Green trees

Silently watching me


And the cats gamboling along

Looking at me


While I look at them

Each wondering what sort of weird creatures

The other is

And who is the real alien species?


In Washington DC

Looking out my window

What did I see


I saw the squirrels in the trees

And the peaceful trees

Of Capitol Hill


Near the seat of power

Yet somehow


I felt It all far away

In Suburban Virginia

Looking out the window

What did I see


I often looked out my window

At the trees and the jungle

In my back yard


And heard the distant roar

Of traffic on the busy suburban street

As people rushed to get to the freeway


In the early morning hours

In Madrid Spain

Looking out the window


What did I see

I looked out at our Spanish neighborhood

Seeing the beautiful Madrid ladies


Walking down the street

Secretly admiring them from afar

In Barbados


Looking out the window

What did I see

The monkeys in the trees


Looking at me

Contemplating raiding my garden

As soon as I went away


In Seoul

Looking out my window

What did I see

The neighborhood

Alive outside my window

For so many years


In Seattle

Looking out my window

What did I see

I saw the ever-changing green


Sea of trees

that is Seattle’s true color

The city is so lush and green

And alive with life’s endless possibilities

In Stockton


Looking out the window

What did I see

The traffic moving

Through the dense fog

That often fell upon the city


Obscuring everything in its embrace

And growing up in Berkeley

Looking out my window

I saw nothing


+But the dirt and trees

And shrubs

Of my ancestral home

And felt nothing

But loneliness


And a desire

To leave my home

As soon as I grew up


That is what I see

When I look out my window

Even to this day


I see where I have been

And wonder where I am going

As I stare out the window


Knowing that my life

Will surely come to an end

As I stare out at the world


,Waiting, waiting, waiting

For my fate to unfold


April 28,

It is God’s will they say


It is God’s will they say

The neofascists and their ilk

It is the white man’s burden

To rule the unruly masses


To this I say

Never again

Will we let them

Take over the world


And lead us back to the dark dangerous days

Of the Holocaust

Or the 19th-century colonial era


Never again

Never again


Until hell freezes over

And the world ends

April 27 –

The Darkness grows


On distant Comazotz planet

The red eye one smiles

It is satisfied

The black thing is spreading

All the way to earth


April 26

Married Girl of My Dreams


I married the girl of my Dreams first dreamt of her back in 1974 Eight years later she walked off a bus and into my life

April 24 62 Years young


I am 62 years young

62 years around the sun

37 of those years I have spent with the love of my life —

April 25,

Somonka for Angela


I have dreamt of you

For almost seven long years

And now you are here


What can I do about this

The only thing to do love you

You are all I want


All that I need in this life

Thank to all the gods

For bringing you into my life

From now to the end of time

April 24,

The Light Will Prevail


Mrs. Which says

This much we know for sure

Despite the lateness of the hour

And the growing power of the Dark Thing

In the end lightness will prevail

Defeating the dark one

April 23 -,

Life In-between


For years I have lived

In-between two worlds


where my wife’s family comes from


And the Bay area

Where I grew up


and the laidback progressive

wild west coast

and the cutthroat

Dour eastern establishment

Washington DC


Where I worked for 27 Years

And I live between


My official duties

And my desire

To be a wild-eyed poet


And life in-between

Means you belong nowhere

Yet are everywhere


Always disoriented

Always half lost

Never really feeling you belong

That is life

Living in-between


April 22nd

The Neo Fascists are let loose


The Neo Fascists are let loose

By their champion the man in Orange


Whose racist mutterings have let loose

The ranting nutty voices of the right


Championing their god given the right

To rule and regulate all that they see

April 21th 2018 Number of the Beast


Behold a vision

A nightmare


The legendary beast of revelations Comes


Sniffs the air

Assuming the mantel of leadership

Turning into the Orange man

With unnatural hair

Spewing forth sweet sounding nonsense

Spraying hate with every word

Inciting the world into madness

He continues into the halls of power Walks down the street

Unleashing hell on earth

Soon all know the number of the beast


As he prepares the world

To accept the anti-Christ

And all bow down

To worship their new master

As he leads the world to hell itself


April 20, –

Plead to the Computer Gods


Today I woke up

As I usually do

To yet another mystifying morning

Of unspecified computer errors

Could not get the computer to work

Then when I finally got it to work

After a half an hour

Microsoft word did not load

And when it did

I finally located my work

From yesterday

I had to find it in the roaming file


Who knows?

Only to find

That most of what I wrote

Had vanished into the ether

No explanation no warning

It was there saved yesterday

And now gone for ever

Once I did an experiment

Tracking computer errors for a week

75% of the time I encountered errors

Most of the time simple

Screen freezes no response message

Then when I recovered the program

The data was gone


Microsoft has yet to respond

to my e-mail

I suppose I need to do it again

But today I will close with a prayer

To the Computer Gods

Just once I would like

You to do what you are supposed to do

Open my documents

Save my work

And not give me any errors

Crashes or other unspecified problems

Is that too much to ask

Oh, Computer Gods

Just once

Do what you are supposed to do

That is all I ask of you

April 19 –

The General Unleashes the Kraken


General Lee

Stared out at the Eastern Sea

Wondering what was out there

On the other end

But today he had a mission

He was going to show

The Emperor

That his sailors had captured

The dreaded kraken sea monster

And had figured out how to ride it

And they were going

to release the kraken

As they put down the latest rebellion

Among the restive folks of the Eastern Shore

Who were resisting becoming part of the Empire

The general ordered

Release the Kraken

And the kraken

A huge sea dragon

Came out of is dark dungeon

And two sailors climbed on board

And the Kraken went into the ocean

And attacked the fishing crafts of the villagers

Killing everyone in a few minutes

Of frenzied violence

The kraken came back

And the sailors climbed off its back

And the kraken attacked them

Killing them in a frenzied act of further violence

The emperor turned to the general

Very impressive

But needs a bit of work don’t you think?

The kraken looked up at the general

And screamed out curses

Saying that the kraken worked for no man

And that other kraken would be summoned

To revenge the attack on the kraken’s honor


And he leaped up

Grabbed the general and the Emperor

And dove into the ocean —

April 18th

Emperor Surveys the Eastern Sea


The Emperor of the known world

Stood out on his balcony

In the eastern sea palace

Surveying the wilds of the Eastern Sea

Wondering who or what lived across the sea

Or if there were lands there

As rumored by all

Lands ruled by nameless bearded ape like men

The Emperor of all the Lands

Ruled all the known world

From the imperial capitol

He had built in the dessert

He ruled all he could see

From the Eastern Shore

To the wild waste lands

Beyond the great wall

The Emperor had fought hard

Over the years

To unify the people

Under one banner

Fighting against the wild ones

Of the Western wastes

And their allies the witches

Of the inner world

And yet he was not satisfied

He knew that he would have to lead

And expedition to the lands

Beyond the eastern Sea

And he could rest

Until he had finally

Conquered the known universe

Bringing it

under imperial control

That was his destiny

To rule the known and unknow universe

As foretold by imperial soothsayers

And the prophetic books of ancient days


April 17th

Five Signs of the Apocalypse



Watching the evening news Spin forth the latest scandals de jour

The fake news and spin

The daily propaganda

And the utter destruction of common sense

And reason

The thought comes to mind

Are we living in the end of times?

Is the Apocalypse drawing neigh?


The signs of the coming of the end times Have been endlessly debated

Among the

Christian right wing blog sphere

Ever since Israel was reborn


triggering the cosmic count down

“According to Revelation 12, a pregnant woman will be hunted by a satanic seven-headed dragon eager to eat her unborn child. The woman will be clothed with the “sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She brought forth a man-child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God and to his throne. The Scripture continues to explain that the “woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”

But the pending eclipse is

another astronomical sign the end is near and that the Rapture is fast approaching.

…. the image will be created in the sky on Sept. 23. …. Virgo represents the woman

in Revelations 12 who will be clothed in sunlight. She will be in position over the moon and under the nine stars and three planets.

…. More importantly, to trust

the right God,” he reported to the publication. “If people want to be ready, the one thing you can do is accept what He has offered, which is the gift of grace and forgiveness. That’s all we have to do to be ready.”

Yet September 23 end and the world are still here.

Are there other signs that the end is near?

All of this

is speculation as Jesus said He didn’t know the date or hour when the Almighty would close the final chapter on mankind. Scripture clearly states in Mathew 24:36 that no one knows when the end will be. “But of that day and hour, no one

knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”


Yet the fear persists in my heart

As I watch the news

The days grow darker

Moment by moment

The light of reason

Seems to be replaced

By famines, rumors of war and false prophets galore

All in according to revelations the false prophets claim

Gods plan unfolding as we speak

“Things like wars, earthquakes, famine and technology (implanted microchips in our bodies already have been tested by BioNyfiken in Sweden) all point that we are moving toward Jesus’ return.


“The prophecy of Daniel 2 alone shows we are in the time of the end and all the other evidence proves we are in the very end times,” the site reported. They

indicated that the world was going to a 100 percent cashless system and how the “powers of this world are now trying to make cash obsolete, and are actively pushing pure electronic forms of payment, like PayPal and Google Wallet for instance. Take a look at the news and you will see this being reported in different countries of the world.”

Yes, this has occurred already.

In India they wiped out the 100 rupees note

to go cashless all at once!

And it failed.


Yes, the signs are all about us

If only we have eyes to see

And ears to hear

And minds to understand


“Non-Christians will find it hard to believe we are living in the last days of earth’s history. It’s in the Bible,

II Peter 3:3-4, TLB.


“First, I want to remind you that in the last days there will come scoffers who will do every wrong they can think of and laugh at the truth. This will be their line of argument: ‘So Jesus promised to come back, did He? Then, where is He? He’ll never come! Why, as far back as anyone can remember everything has remained exactly as it was since the first day of creation.’”


Yes, why has not Jesus come back?

Is that yet another sign the end is near?

They all say the coming of the Antichrist

is a sign of the end?


“It’s in the Bible, I John 2:18, NKJV. “


“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.”

What moral conditions will be characteristic of society in the last days? It’s in the Bible, II Timothy

3:1-5, NIV.


“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.”


And this is so true in the era of Trump

and the new oligarchs who have taken over

The swamp monsters have come out

of the dark slimly corners of America


Proclaiming it is their time to come out

And openly rule the world

And the Bible confirms this dire prophecy




“Talk of peace and safety are a sign of the last days. It’s in the Bible, I Thessalonians 5:2-3, NIV.


“For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”


The gospel will go to the whole world and the end will come. It’s in the Bible, Matthew 24:14, NIV. “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”


Yes, I say on to you

When talk of peace in the world is upon us

When the Korean lions lay down their weapons


And proclaim their new-found brotherhood

Perhaps the end times are finally coming to pass


“We have seen how seven biblically prophesied circumstances could not have come to pass until recent times. In fact, the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 was clearly a major turning point in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, as was the acquisition of the hydrogen bomb by the two superpowers of the 1950s that led to the period of mutually assured destruction.


All has now become possible. This, in turn, makes it much more likely that our generation will live to see Jesus Christ return and establish the Kingdom of God on earth. After all, Jesus Himself said that once these things begin, the generation alive at that time “will by no means pass away till all these things take place” (Matthew 24:34).”


And so, we close

Where we began


that the end of the world is coming


How it will end is beyond anyone’s guess

Perhaps the zombie apocalypse will end civilization


More likely nuclear war and nuclear winter

Will doom us all

Perhaps a super volcano

Will blow us all to hell

Perhaps alien invaders will take us over


Exterminating us as we try to do to the Native Americans

Perhaps an AI will take us over

Leading us

To terminator Land


the rapture will occur

And the grim events

In revelations

will come to pass

And perhaps

nothing will happen

We will somehow survive

The end times

But I am afraid

That the end times are coming

Sooner than we think

And so, the world ends

Much as it began

With a big bang

Or a soft whimper

God only knows

And he is silent as usual

Living with Pain (Hanibun)


Back in 1996 I had the accident that changed everything.  I went jogging one morning. It was dark outside, and I thought that I knew the trail.  Big mistake.  I fell down a ledge hidden where the trail should have been.  I shattered me heal in a million pieces.  I was rushed to an ER and told that I need an emergency operation and would be bed ridden for four months.

My wife was in San Antonio at the time serving in the Army, I was in DC working for the State Department.  I flew in a wheel chair to San Antonio where they proclaimed that they had to wait a week for the swelling to go down before they could operate.  The Air force doctors wanted to try a new procedure – using shark cartridge as a bone supplement.  The operation was a success until I quit taking antibiotics six months later.  I was in DC by myself then.  I went to the hospital for an unrelated thing -removal of a cist I think.  But the doctors took one look at me and proclaimed that the staph had become a multiple drug resistant staph and I needed an urgent operation.  The next day I had the third of 15 operations.  I endured six months at Walter Reed hospital but that was in the 90’s prior to the wars of the 21st century filled the base up. They had few customers and I got to know the doctors well.


I know pain

Intimately aware of every ache

Every pain


Ever since that day

When I went under the knife

And had the 14 operations

That saved my life


But I am not one to complain

I became one with the pain

Which I endure to this day


Knowing that I am alive

Having cheated death

Twenty times in life


Waiting for the grim reaper

To finally claim me

But that day has not come


And until then

I will endure

Hiking the Hills of My Youth


I grew up in Berkeley, California in the 60’s.  Ever since I was a youngster I would wander the hills of Berkeley hiking for hours by myself and sometimes with my friends. I explored every nook and cranny every corner of the hills and got to know nature in its infinite beauty.


Ever since those days, I have longed for the day that I could spend my days hiking and wandering in the hills.  Now that I am retired and living in Korea I can go for a long walk in the hills every day I want.  It is not the same as the hills I grew up, no vistas of the Bay and it is in Korea to boot but most days it is sufficient as I head out early afternoon and conquer four or five miles of hills just enjoying that fact that I can still move and am still very much alive at age



I grew up hiking the hills of Berkeley, California

Grew up knowing every corner of the hills

And the infinite beauty of the Bay Area


And now I find myself in a strange land

With time on my hands

I wander the hills above the airport

In Incheon Korea


And wander about here and there

Just being grateful

That I am still alive

And kicking at age 62


April 14 –

There is nothing more to be said


Nothing more I can add

Nothing more than this

I will love you

Until the end of time itself and death does us part


April 13 -,

Learning I am part Jewish


Recently I learned that I was part Jewish

That was long rumored in our family tree

Never confirmed until DNA came again


But whether my Jewish ancestors lived

Or died in the holocaust I have not heard

Never again will we live through that pain


April 12-

Hiking in the Spring Time Snow


Talking a walk in the mountains

In the spring time snow

Snow falling all over the trail

As I wander through the hills


Breathing the early spring smells

And seeing the world covered in white magic

The last remnants of the winter’s touch


Before the spring time gambol of flowers

Overwhelms nature once again

Preparing for the summer’s hellish heat


April 11,

Met My Fate Haiku


I met my late fate

Seeing her face in a bar

And my fate ended

Walls Divide Us


In Modern America

We all live in gated communities

Trying desperately to keep them out

Out of sight

Out of mind

And out of our lives


And yet we fail

Fail to accept the others

Are human beings

Are our fellow creatures

As we wall ourselves off

Into our separate communities

We lose our humanity


And we lose ourselves

As we hide in our walls

Hide in our bubbles


April 05th

Has Been Done Before


Before Trump’s Wall

There were many other walls

The Berlin Wall

The Great Wall

Hadrian’s Wall


All the walls of the ancient world

All failed

To keep the enemies out


The enemies of freedom

The enemies of the state

Still came across the border


To loot, steal, rape and plunder

And nothing could stop

The flood of history

April 04, –

Trump’s Wall Against Reason


The President wants to build a wall

Against the southern hordes

Another great wall

To keep the barbarians out


He wants to build a wall

Against reason

Against science

Against the modern world

Hiding behind the wall

On the southern border


Desperately trying to keep them out

The unwashed masses

The undocumented

The illegals


Streaming across the border

Seeking to wreck the pure land

Murderous hordes

Rapists, drug dealers

Coming to take our land over


As he stands on the border

Trying to stop the hordes himself

How Much I Despise You


2007 How Much I Despise You

2017 How Much I despise You

Following 2016 the second worst year ever Will 2018 be any better?


And what we have suffered

The darkness settles on the land

Like a curse on the land


As our mad demented senile

dotard king wannabe

Struts about the world’s stage

Ushering America’s inevitable decline


April 1

Thank God for Angela


Every day I wake up

And see you there

I thank God


That he had the wisdom

To send you to me

To save me


By bringing you into my life

You are the sunshine

That lights up the day


You are the reason

I get up in the morning

And you are the reason

I exist


Without you I am nothing

But dust blowing in the wind


Waiting until death

Takes me down

The End
