Let there be drums! And margaritas, and sunshine…lots of sunshine.
She is vengeance. She is the night. She is…Batlamb!

OLDEST FOOTPRINTS OUTSIDE OF AFRICA!
In the warm autumn wicker staleness,
I am rocked to end-sleep
step by fisherman’s step,
along Horse Creek.
Lulled into the abyss
by a robin’s song.
The creek flows, sighing, endless
I know no sound sadder than
the first leaf fallen
or a wild rainbow taken. —JBea Young
He tips another up to the sagging, cherubic lip
and drinks a beer from a wide-hipped bottle
singing praises within
blue notes and bluer words, still.
In the pale, cool hours of a smoky bar
he communes with strangers
the royal blue robe stains him
He sings hallelujah.
coffee, creamer and sugar
He saves two doughnuts
One for him and
one for his mother. — JBea Young
Consumption of Easter treats in Day-Glo colors may lead to temporary harm of your avatar.
After buying and consuming two new kinds of Peeps for Easter, this reviewer gives Peeps Orange Creme flavor and Peeps Strawberry Creme flavor a marginal 2 carrots out of 5. While Peeps are notorious for being basically sugar, these new flavors up the ante by combining marshmallow, sugar, and sprinkles which can best be described as tasting like the dry Jell-O powder (before it gets mixed with water.) Not sure if it is an improvement over the old Peeps if you think that “sugar” is a flavor; however, if you are going for the total sugar high, these are the treats for you. Untasted, and probably will remain that way, are Vanilla flavor and Party Cake flavors. Save your carrots and spend your money on Moonstruck chocolates.
