    He has searched long for that love of all loves,
    but it hastens not, although winter has come

    and left him desolate of every hope of warmth,
    comfort, and prospect of his name's immortality.

    Nor will this elusive love reveal itself
    in his tiny dreams, allowing, at the very

    least, a gossamer of muted visions that
    would elevate a worn and bitter man to

    a level of expanded vistas, kindling
    within the flame of love's illusion.

    SINCE I DON'T HAVE YOU, I conjure up an image
    that is, somehow, both real and ideal.

    What I do recall is etched deeply, in dark and
    labyrinthine caverns of my troubled mind.

    The heart is a profound well of reminiscence
    that draws up an intangible yet true past.

    A newfound, tranquil corner in me reassures that
    love, though gone missing, was never lost.

    THE VALLEY OF THE BLUE MOON, a verdant and slightly concave sprawling hollow at the foot of the largest snow-capped rock I ever laid eyes on, is not home to me, nor ever shall it be. Had I entered Paradise under my own steam -- not kidnapped -- I daresay my impressions of the proverbial Utopia would be immeasurably more favorable.

    Nonetheless, I long for the hustle, the bustle, the din of my dirty and lusty city by the bay, whose roots sink deep into the ancient mire of human folly and wanton avarice. What some men consider the deplorable state of fallen man and his consequent foray into all things bad is what titillates and nourishes my aching soul. I suck life in through every pore of my unhallowed flesh and am, to be sure, fed in such a manner that would unhinge the pure at heart.

    I have neither desire nor need for a perfect state of affairs and a seeming comfort that coddles the body but eats the soul.

    They ate his soul then they ate his heart

    He hoped he wouldn't fall apart

    But then the sun rose up one day

    Inside his house along the Bay

    Nancy Drew is a gem, and so, too, her fanciful spin offs on the all-too serious musings of a demented poet.
