  • Natural, necessary, new letter 'N'.
    As ‘A’ takes her bow
    ’N’ claims center stage.

    N says, “No may be an option
    but never is only a concept.
    Now is my moment.”*


    On the great river Nile,
    Nike, goddess of victory
    dawns her negligee
    and listens to the
    as the nightmare
    the nightlife
    the nitwit
    the neophyte
    takes up pen.

    Nocturnal Nike
    nods and all that
    is done is undone...
    Nitrogen cycle
    of plant and animals
    nitrification of life
    return to
    whence it came.

    The Sphinx, smiles as a
    Norse God Ran tips his helm
    in nautical hearty refrain
    “Heavenly nocturne,
    oceans numerous and raging,
    set course to the Northern lights
    following Polaris, the North star.”

    Nike’s name etched
    upon Ran's ship's bow
    Ran takes Nótt, Goddess of Night,
    to wed and the nuptials commence.

    Numbness echos as negative reenactments commence
    the nymphet Nike lies nude and nondescript
    amongst the Niles noonday sun.
    In denial, she says "No love lost."

    *Note: As I navigate this nebula,
    my neural cells spasm
    and my neurotic tendencies exude.
    New born ’N’ says next and
    nihilism says no more.
