The Threshold To The Other World...(March 2021/Feb 2021)

(MELISSA'S) ALL---TRUE---ISMS....3/3/2021 4:51 pm PACIFIC STANDARD TIME

February 11, 2012 / Today The Storm...

MOLECULES

No Broom Could Chase Me.



Self-Improvementizing....(yes, I made up a new word)

Big Is No Little Adjective. (revised)

Taking Up Alley Living

YOU DO NOT GROW OLD

Out On The Street

THE MILES THAT ARE LEFT TO GO...

I Need To Fly

Burying the Dark

Judging The Rain

Mister Misbegotten.

The Haircut Thing

The Bare Bones

Lull the Day to Night

I Came From Water

Every One of Us Has a Door....

THEY NAMED ME ENOUGH

THE CRYPT OF THE KEPT AND THE KEEPER

UNDECIDED

Patch-Worked Trilogy

To Them, I am Dead, I am Dead

Uncovered

Knock, Then Come Through

Elise, Elise

The Blue Buffalo

Little Man Orange--My Mister Peanut Butter Trout

Wisdom of the Infinite

THE STITCH IN THE TELEPHONE WIRES

so fast to frowns
from smiles to upside down
Elise, Elise

fine fair hair
blankets of care
mile-wide blue-eyed stare
Elise, Elise

transformed
to be turned out
another girl from the
wonder wheel
Betty Crocker approved
edges removed

Elise, Elise
you're quite the sliver
of cherry pie
no whip, no frills
but the remade girl
to catch the prize

enough to stir
a Mother's pride
enough to make
the eyes assess--
and eyebrows rise

Elise,Elise
why still
do you possess such a will
and refuse to smile?
