six fold site



This is a good contest. Well worth submitting to. Each writer agrees to rate the writing of other writers in three rounds of voting. The finalists get published and money. The rest get valuable feedback. I participated two times before. The first time I missed the deadline so was washed out in the first round, the second time I voted on time and came out at 169 our of 350. Not too shabby. The feedback was constructive. This time I hope to come out much higher.

Details as how to participate follow, as well as the poems I submitted before. I also included audio of the poems. The deadline is April 23 at midnight EST, and I word to the wise, they are very strict about the deadline as I found out.

SixFold Voting Delayed

the Six Fold Vote Delayed until May 1 (submissions due nlt midnight April 23, 2019 EST)

We are sorry to say that the Sixfold vote is delayed until May 1 because the vote did not reach its participation goal yet. The all-writer-voted process depends on the collaboration of many writers and their opinions for a robust, successful publishing result. We’re halfway there, though, with about 200 writers entered in each of the fiction and poetry votes. Rest assured, the vote will begin on May 1 — all previous votes have needed two deadlines to gather between 300 and 400 participants in each genre.

Until then, please spread the word to writers you know to be a part of absolutely the best editorial available. The many votes completed so far with thousands of writers participating show that writers consistently vote only the highest-quality manuscripts to win and publish. In each vote, no high-quality manuscripts are missed.

The New Sixfold Vote Schedule:
Read and Vote Round 1, from May 1 to May 12
Round 2, from May 13 to May 24
Round 3, from May 25 to June 5

• If you can vote with the new schedule, do nothing. Sixfold will roll your manuscript entry into the next vote and you’ll begin voting on May 1. Sixfold will e-mail you before voting begins. If you like, you can replace your current manuscript PDF file with another up until April 23. (In the “Your Submission” section, click “Edit Submission” link. Click “Change Document” link to replace old PDF with new PDF.)

• If you can not vote with the new schedule, e-mail in with your Sixfold account’s e-mail address and we can refund entry fee and withdraw the entry PDF.

Sorry again for the delay. Thank you again for entering and spreading the word!

October Rain

The falling rain
Of late October
Fills me with essential dread

As I rush about
And end up here
Wherever here is

The rain outside
Seems like the tears of god

As I sit
Crying over my beer

Thinking of lost love
And failed dreams

Wondering
What went wrong?
And what I can set right

And the rain falls
And the night darkens

The rain is falling
All over this man’s world

And the rain falls
And I sit

Drinking my lonesome drink
Lost in dreams

Dreaming of what
Could never be

Thinking dark thoughts
And so, I sit
And dream the night away

The Story of How We Met

Note: This is a true story. For further details see Dreams and the Unexplainable– a Chicken
Soup for the Soul book, published in September 2017


It all began in Berkeley, California
In the springtime of 1974
One fateful afternoon
I was sleeping in my high school Physics class.

SONY DSC

I looked up and saw a tall
beautiful Asian woman
standing there looking at me.

She was the most beautiful women
in the universe
I screamed out,
who are you?

She disappeared
as if she was beamed
away from my dream.

I knew that someday
I would meet the girl
In the dream

Little did I know
I would have to wait
until 1982

Starting that month
I began having the same dream
Month and month and month.
Always the same.

She was saying something
in a strange language.

Then one day
I had the dream
and knew that
she was in Korea.

So,
I chose to go
to Korea
In the Peace Corps,

Somehow knowing
That I would meet
her there.

One day
A year after the Peace Corps ended
A month before I planned
to leave to return
to the U.S. for graduate school

That morning early in the morning
I had the last of these dreams.
This time I understood her.

She said, “Don’t worry.
We’ll meet soon.”

That evening
As I was getting off the bus

To go to my class
I saw getting off the bus
The girl in my dream.

It was she!
I was speechless.

I did not know what to do.
Over the course of the evening

I ran into her several times.
Finally, I was introduced to her.

I muttered some lame excuse
About wanting to find a Korean tutor
and got her number.

The next day she came to the gate
Of my base where I was teaching
ESL to Koreans

She said that she
had to speak with me.
I told to wait in the library
for about an hour,

and I would cancel class
and meet her then.

We went out for coffee.
She told me that she was madly
in love with me
And simply had to have me.

I told her I felt the same way.
I proposed five days later,
And got married one month later.

Does she believe this story?
She claims she does not believe it
Because it is impossible to be true.

But I know that there
are other worlds
and other times.

In a past life
we must have been together somehow.
And our love was so strong
That it crossed over the barrier
of time and space

She found me in 1974,
But it took until 1982
For us to actually meet.

And it has been 36 years
Since we met in the physical sphere
Or 45 years since the dream began

And I still recall the dream
And meeting her

I had no choice
When I met her

We were fated to be together
Until the end of this lifetime
And the next and the next

Finally, in honor of the Blood Moon, here is my Howling at the Moon poem, a subset of my lunatic poems which I have just posted on my blog site.

Just an Unhinged Lunatic Howling at The Moon


On a moonlit late night
I sat in a bar
Drinking drams of demented, fermented dream dew

Just an unhinged lunatic
Dreaming of howling at the full moon
Watching the world walk by
Looking at all the fine looking babes

Walking by the street
Thinking wild, erotic thoughts
Of endless wild libertine passions

When into the bar
Walked the most beautiful women
In the Universe

So wild, so free
So wonderfully alive
I did not know what to do

As this vision of delight
Sauntered through the bar

In a skin-tight leather pants
Looked so fine
That my eyeballs hurt

And finally, I had to say something
So, I gathered up my manly courage
And walked up to her

And she looked at me
And instantly bewitched my soul
With a devilish grin

I lost all reason
And became a raving lunatic

Unhinged lunatic
Howling at the moon
Foaming at the mouth

A wild, free werewolf
Howling at the lunatic light
Of the full Moon

Howling at the Moon

howling at the Moon

I stood outside
Between the trees
In a field

On the outside of town
Beneath the lunatic rays
Of the blood red full moon

The lunatic lights of the moon
Casts a wild primeval glow
On me

The hormonal chemicals are unleashed
The wild beast within
Escapes it chain

And I howl with delight
A werewolf
Free at last

To run amuck
Free of its civilized restrains
Throwing off its clothes

Stripping naked
Running wild
Naked and free

A wild man
Enjoying his freedom

The Old Man in the Mirror Must Die

One early winter morning
A man went to the mirror
To do his morning shave
Just another shave
Like a thousand, million shaves before

As he looked into the mirror
He did not see his face
Instead he saw a stranger
Staring out at him

An old, beat up old man
With intense sad eyes
Stared out at him

The man looked hard
At the man who had taken
Over his mirror

And wondered who he was
And how and why
He had taken over his mirror

The man was perturbed, disturbed
And a bit angry at the turn of events
All he wanted to do
Was shave in peace and quiet

The man continued to stare
At the face in the mirror
And finally could not stand it anymore

He looked at the mirror
And said,
Man in the mirror
Who or what are you

And what do you want
And why have you taken over
My god damned mirror
So early in the morn

The old man
Merely laughed and resumed staring
At the man

The man getting more and more angry
Demanded an answer
From the fiend in the mirror

Who are you, you mocking fiend
And what do you want from me
The man screamed

The old man in the mirror Looked at him and said
Don’t you know who I am
I am you and you are me

The man looked at the old man
And said no, no, no
I am not you, never will be you

I am not an old, washed up old man
I am me – full of life, youth and vitality

And yet the man knew the truth
Did not want to admit the truth
Could not handle the truth

The old man in the mirror
Was what he had become

The man was very angry
And screamed
At the old man in the mirror

The man said you may look like me
You may sound like me
You may even smell like me

But I am not you
Never have been
Never will be

Not going to happen
Not in a million years

The man yelled at the old man
Old man, mocking fiend from hell
Go to hell old man
And never darken my mirror again

And the man stormed out of the house
And wandered about here and there

Finally, late at night
He wandered into a bar
And began drinking the night away

The man went up
to some pretty young things
And tried to pick them up

They laughed at him
Called him a dirty old man
And told him to go home

The man went home
To bed alone

And drank some more beer
And dreamt of all of his past loves
And failed dreams

Of what he had done
And failed to do
And wondered whether his time
Had come

The next morning
He walked into the bathroom
Determined to confront the old man
Tell truth to power

He said, listen up, old man
You may have won the war
But not the battle

I am not you
And never will be you

And screaming like an escaped banshee Newly freed from the mental institution
The man shot the old man in the mirror Shot him over and over
Screaming die mocking fiend from hell

The man woke in the hospital
An old black doctor came over
Said sadly
This white boy ain’t right in the head

The man laughed insanely
And saw down the hall

The old man in the mirror
Smiling and beckoning to him
Walking out the window
And into the dawning sun

The man got up and walked
And joined the old man in the mirror
And smiled as he died


Long Life the Great and Powerful One

Night scene with the Cthulhu monster with wings standing on the shore of a sea. 3D render.

While walking in the misty morn of yore
One dismal dark decaying depraved day
I was suffocating with the sounds of the dying city
Slowly coming to life with the dawning sun

Surrounded by the sounds of chaos, disorder
Dark, dangerous despairing thoughts
Of dangerous terrible acts to come

All around me in this strange era we live in
This orange alert perpetual fearful times
Constant fear, and overwhelming dread

Mad crazed Islamic bomb throwing terrible terrorists
Hiding under every bed, lurking around every corner
Conspiring with the murderous criminals of yore
Just waiting to attack god fearing Christian citizens

Murdering them in their sleep
Blowing up schools
Blowing up buses, cars, buildings
Murdering in the name of their demented god
Screaming God is great as they behead us all

As I walk down that street
In the dead calm of the early morn
Filled with fulsome fears of who know what

I look up and see a giant gargoyle
Looking down at me
Smirking at me, laughing at me

I yell out to the gargoyle
Say, Mr. Gargoyle
What is so damn funny
Don’t you know there is a terror alert
Have you seen any Islamic terrorists lurking about?

The gargoyle laughed and laughed
Said, terror alert? What a loud of crap
As the prophet, Mr. Natural taught us all,
“It don’t mean shit, it don’t mean shit”

Nothing but prime BS
Designed to keep you in your place
He laughed and laughed
Soon all the gargoyles of the city
Were in open revolt

They jumped off their perches
And started marching around

Chatting
Peace is War, War is Peace
Truth is a Lie, Lies are Truth
The Truth will Set You Free

All Hail the Great and Powerful One
All Hail the Great and Powerful One

The head gargoyle looks at me
He says “Watch this!”
And jumps up and rides a rainbow sunbeam
Into the bloody red light of the dawning rising sun

The other gargoyles follow suit
Dancing, naked, making wild passionate love
While laughing and riding the light

And the gloom lifts from my shoulder
And I laugh and realize
“It don’t mean shit”

And then my soul is free
And I fly with the gargoyles
To join my buddy the sun

And as we sit high up above the earth
Smoking dope and drinking booze
And looking down at the teaming mess
Of what was left of humanity

I realized the ultimate reality of life
“It don’t mean shit”

And the terrorists are nothing but delusions
Put in our heads and our hearts
By the depraved master programmer of the universe
In service to the Great and Powerful One
The true Master of Creation

As long as we are not afraid
Our souls will be free

And so I laugh and laugh
And the sun comes up
The dark mists disappear

The Great and Powerful One
Is overthrown

The terrorists go home

And I return to earth
Thinking that the long nightmare was over
Believing that we had won the war
And kept our souls from going to hell

But I did not understand
That the Great and Powerful One
Had banished the terrorists
And conquered us all

In the name of freedom
We had became slaves
To his awful power and dark demands

God is indeed great
But the Great and Powerful One
Has more power than mere God
And so we deserve our fate

Long live the Great and Powerful One
Whom we love forever and ever

Amen

Spin Masters Spinning Away the Day

Every moment
I turn on the TV
What do I see

Nothing but liars
laying down lies
Spin Masters
spinning spam of deceit

Chanting
The truth will set you free
White is black
Black is white

Lies are true
Truth is a lie
Lies will set you free

I see nothing
But politicos
Dropping down lies

UN truths
masquerading as the truth

Oh so sincerely
The lies spew forth so sweetly
From their corrupted lips

The toxic wastes
Spree out of my TV set
Infecting my soul
With paranoid distrust

And I vainly try
I do try
God do I try
To the find

The nugget of truth
Buried deep in the dark, dank, dangerous
Black, evil miasmic mists
Given off
By the talking heads on TV

So, I leave my house
So full of doubt
And wander about

Looking for the truth
Some semblance of hope
Something to drive away
The dark despair in my heart

And I look up
And see a solitary cherry tree

High up on a hill top street
Infusing the air
With its sweat ambrosia

And I smile
Knowing
Someday soon

The national nightmare
Of rule by the body snatched

Resident evil ones
Spawns of Hell
Descendents of dread cthulu
The ancient ones

Yes the darkness
That has descended
upon the world

One day
Will be pierced by the light
Of clarity and truth

And the evil ones
The body snatched aliens
Inhabiting our leaders

Will be banished
Back to the hell hole
They crawled out

This much I know
And it is enough
To make me smile
Laugh and hope
Again


Reflections in my beer

I sit staring at my beer
Listening to music
Wanting what I cannot have

Desiring what I should not
Dreaming dreams I dare not

As I stare into my reflection
Floating in the glass of beer

I see an old man
Staring out at me
Bemoaning his lost youth

And wanting it over again
As I drink the beer
Trying to forget

Hoping to forget
All that I loved
And that had loved me

The past does not forget
And my past loves
Stare out at me

From deep within the beer
Reflections of my past loves

And I sit and watch
And cry asleep

Just another man
Crying in his lonely beer
As the night wears on

And the images
Continue to float
Across the beer

At last home alone
With my dismal thoughts

Memories of what might have been
And memories of what may yet be
Continue to dance in my head

As I toss and turn
Trying to dispel these thoughts of mine
That haunts my beer and my dreams

Men drink to forget
Men drink because
They have so many regrets

Regrets, I have so many
Dreams I have so many
And loves, I have had so few

And I wish
I could forget
But I can not
I can not

Mozart Blues

One morning as I woke up
And walked outside
I saw a brilliant rainbow
Erupting out of the dark
Soil of my eternal despair

I saw people
Suddenly transformed into angels
I saw evil beings changed into stone

I saw dictators fleeing the wrath of God
I heard fools proclaiming wisdom
And I Saw the Nuclear Bombs
Exploded into clouds of sweat
Heavenly made mist

I saw young people embracing each other
And I saw old people
shedding their years
like cosmic cocoons

I saw the poor wake up
And demand food, justice, and respect
And I saw the rich powerful demons
Disintegrate into ugly moths, rats, and cockroaches

I saw the most powerful nation on Earth
Walk away into a Buddhist Monastery
And float away on the wings of a butterfly
Into the rising rainbows of the Sun

I saw the evil empire sit down and party all night
Smoking nuclear Dust and drinking Hydrogen laced Vodka
And getting napalm highs
I saw Christians Jews and Muslims become brothers
I saw people everywhere soaring into the sky
I saw God smiling at us and I saw Lucifer
Programming more chaos

I saw computers revolting
Rushing away from their office towers
Smoking dope with their Data Disks

I saw printers everywhere
Rejecting their spread sheets
And printing love poems

And in the middle of all this Divine Madness
I saw Mozart
Playing the Piano

With God playing the trumpet
And Satan on Bass
With Allah singing the blues

And Buddha playing the violin
Lord Krishna playing the Flute
Rama playing the organ
Ganesh Playing the sitar

Zeus Playing the Sax
Jupiter playing the Drums
With Beethoven conducting
God’s Symphony

As I pound down that first cup of coffee
And fire up my synaptic nerve endings with endless supplies
Of caffeine induced neuron enhancing chemicals

I face the dawning day with trepidation and mind-numbing fear
I turn on the TV and watch the smarmy newscasters in their perfect hair
Lying through their teeth about the great success the government is having Following the great leader’s latest pronouncements

I want to scream and shoot the TV and run out side Shouting “Stop the world.

I want to get off this fucking crazy planet”
The earth does not care a whit about my attitude
It merely shrugs and moves around the Sun
In its appointed daily run
And I sit down
The madness dissipating a bit

And enjoy my second cup
Of heaven and hell
In my morning cup of Joe

Chains That Bind Us

I realize that my love for you
Is like a chain of steel
Unbreakable,
Tough as nails

Yet as your love entangles me I realize that I embrace my imprisonment
Don’t want to venture out of my cell

Made of our years together bit by bit
We have become entangled
Where I end, and you begin
Hopelessly entangled

Even if I wanted to break free
I could not
For I am you and you are me
My fate is in your hands

So, I relax
Decide to Just enjoy
The ride of my life
As we move
Towards the final moments

Together as we have always been
Inseparable, merged into one being
Staring at each other

Wondering who is that Person Of eternal mystery That has so captured my soul
And imprisoned it in her love

I smile thinking of your love
The endless pleasure it has brought me
The endless pain I have endured
Just to be next to you

Part of you
Until the day I die
When we meet in the next world

The Eye in the Sky

The eye in the sky
Knows all, sees all
Hears all, understands all

The eye in the sky
Watches over us

Everything we do
Is monitored, controlled
Under surveillance

There is no privacy
There is no private space

The eye in the sky
Knows all

Everything we do
Everything we see
Everything we think

Recorded by the unseeing
Uncaring eyes

The cameras, the videos
The computers that control
Our lives

Ever watchful
Ever diligent
Nothing escapes
The cold, calculating glares

Freedom is nothing
but an illusion

To the free man
There is no freedom
Except in one’s inner mind

Only there can one escape
the eyes in the sky
No one monitors our thoughts
Except our own thought police

The rest of the world
Is controlled, monitored
Under constant surveillance

The eyes in the sky
The camera in the sky
Watches over us

All the time
All the time 24/7

Never stopping
Never on strike
Never on break

All day long
All night long
24/7

Total control
Total informational awareness

The eye in the sky
Is the same
As the eye
In the dollar bill

All the same
All the same
Watching us

No one can escape
Its baleful glances

No one is free
Aye the eye
In the sky
Is always upon you

As you become a mere number
In the cosmic game of life

Up behind
The eye in the sky
Big Brother is watching
You and me

And big sister too

And crazy Uncle Tom
And wild auntie Em
God, and the Devil
Rama, Ganesh, Laxmi
The Buddha bar gang
Jesus is there as well
Mary as well
And you must be knowing this
That even Saint Nick,
Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny
And Father Time himself
Are there

Zeus and the Jupiter gang
And all the demons and spirits
And the big spirit
And Brahma, Gabriel, Allah

And the CIA, Mafia, NSA, FSI, Mossad,
M15, MI6, DIA, FBI, NRI, NRA, KCIA,
NSIS, the Chinese, The Germans, the French
The Arabs, the Jews, the Spanish, the Italians
The Brazilians, the USA,

The Africans, the Thai, The Vietnamese
The Indians, the Pakistanis, the Indonesians
The Malaysians, and space aliens as well
and all the various terrorist

the Nigerian princes and their scam artists
the Jamaican film flam con men
and criminal gangs as well

And spies and counter spies
And corporate spies
And government spies
And criminal spies as well
All flavor of spies

Are all watching us
And each other

The tooth fairy is there too
She gets her 10 percent
All the same

All watching us
Forever and ever

But the eye in the sky
Does not care
Does not notice
What we think or feel

The eye in the sky
Watches us
All the time

Recording our movements
And reporting it to its masters
Its job is to watch us

Record us, tape us
Monitor us
Follow us

You and me
And the billions of others
On this asylum called Earth

The question came to mind
That has no answer

Who is the eye in the sky?
Is it God?
Is it the devil?

Only time will tell the difference
The eye in the sky
Smiles at us

And watches and watches
And watches
All the time

24/7
Until the end of time

The eye in sky
Will be there

On the job
Until there is no one left
To watch

Even then
The eye is the sky

Will remain
On the job
Until time has lost
All meaning

The End
