Victor Touche ? Actually, a 59 plus five year imposition on this planet. Who.... always wanted to slow down, explore the other side of his brain, and amount to something other than a paycheck. Of course the other side of me would argue paycheck first - more...

He is an accomplished poet and is currently at the #63 spot on this years rankings.

she turns
"A Stouter Mane" by victortouche
Torrents splash
across my mind

Surfing moods
I cast for love

Make a loop now
A noose-like slipknot
A loose knot
that could not
reign in

a seahorse
the stouter mane
I sought to tame

No noose
tightens time
nor free verse's rope
the rhyme

All this time
I meant to be
what she can't see

I'll call
Her head turns

my crooked walk slide
found the right side
just in time


Author Notes
Attention please everyone:
I have inadvertently used
phrases from a writer on
this site.

It is only fair that he be credited
for such. Mr. Jesse James Doty
is a gentleman and a good writer.

These phrases are taken almost
verbatim from his poem-
"Search for Satisfaction"

"Torrents splash thoughts
across my mind."

"Surfing moods."

I sincerely apologize to all.
I have apologized to Mr. Doty.
He has been magnanimous
enough to allow me the use
of his writing in this poem-
"A Stouter Mane."

Thank you,

victor touche
But it just works for me.
