Adrift Panama City's Cabin Fever, in a Conservative melt down that the only thing it seems they look forward in PC, is visitors moving into condos with Wall-Mart supplies and leaving soon after empty, never visiting local establishments. That the Blue Light Special on Spring Break runs with Sunday Mass tickets to pay for those families that own Panama City's concrete. Why they pay police overtime on Sunday to fill in tickets for the city coffers. The police officers here even act like health, and yard officials inspecting for compliance of local laws that it seems is up to their own police interpretation. Okay, the police here are really pretty decent, but the politicians here use them here like IRS income agents. That they bring in more money from the courts than property taxes. Venting is good, but it makes some officials to say &%#* poet.

Cabin Fever


Stripped barren the terse weather whipped out its lashing tongue.

The acidity frothed upon a frenzy abrasion eating away any civility.

Naked was the chill that bore the soul cold upon the mourning quill,

A reverberated skeletal frame groaned under its heavy mental strain.


Awake gravity that reigns forlorn to bear wilderness torn asunder,

Nail the fear scaring shadows that echo ghostly wraiths nevermore.

Lost souls upon graven tales that turns blood frigid in rigid hibernation.

Quick sand grains of reflective possessions crumble in lonely isolation.


Overcast cerebral gray fog hangs low to feel blank stares solitary wounds

Hemisphere voids wearing hollow sockets tear upon whether or knots,

Twisting taunt upon a tick tock clock mainspring awaiting spring renewal.

Thunder, oh thunder the elocution of writer’s blocks in four wall prisons.


Kneel in baptismal rains washing anew fountains spring of poetic youth,

Burn the pyre of winter graven words of stale air; open the coffin doors.

Awake poet onto stepping stone stanzas adrift dawning pastel livid images,

Vivid characters flow free through bare footprints on see shore tides.


Sail the wind currents of lines levitating vowels of enlightened character,

Creating medicinal cleansing harmonic heartbeats resonance alight revival.

Phoenix poet flame aloft solar celestial wings, break free of any restraints

Shatter cabin fever’s shackled conformity, skinny dip your birthday suit.

In a Declaration of Independence drifting free forevermore.
