I’m working very fucking hard on some new poetry. Or I am about to burn down the house as the poem is wont to resolve itself.

for my love

Still missing my wife – another poem from the recently published “gypsy bars...” (go to published page for download or click link for scribd if you wish)


vagaries and kitchen tile tangos

forĀ  K

I am St. Juan Grande Pecador in this new life;

unpredictably weeping and loving,

writing poetry and song.


so wantonly tired and worn but not sleeping.

sad that I cannot sleep next to you,

sad that I cannot sleep at all.


I think how I have loved you.

in morning and night,

I think how I love you.


I am St. Juan Grande Pecador

sitting in the sun, contemplating

the vagaries of kitchen table conversation


– Hoc Scripsi

easy love –

by jhon baker

for Kara


my love

my wife

eleven years and more


we keep the lawn trimmed

without concern

weeds grow in the flower garden

and we

still without concern


dishes pile in the sink

and coffee spills on the linoleum

but no concern


we love

in love

no concern


easy love

beautiful love

no concern


– Hoc Scripsi


Kara, my baby, my love,

I miss you so much that my heart beats irregular.

my body feels wrapped in plastic.

I long and in longing feel misplaced.

every moment away I realize our love immeasurable.

– your melancholy man

Scribd, as introduced to me by my friend and publisher, Lynne Hayes, is quite the cool tool and has garnered me a few new readers. I’m loving it.

Anyway, here are a few links to there if you were at all interested.

for Micael…

the artist dreams of nightsong…


gypsy bars…

hands on the hips….

All but one of those are available for free download and I strongly encourage you to download them, print them out and possibly hand a few out to a few people – or any of them can be obtained through me for the cost of shipping and they will then be signed except for hands on the hips – for that go to the page in print/for sale. FYI – the artist dreams of nightsong is best printed on a legal size page.
