Jean Paul Sartre and the Cell Phone

If Sartre told the truth to his interviewer
When he became fond of a fountain pen
He would give it away.
He did not want the pen to own him.

As one owned by many things
I salute this Nobel bard owned only by his cafe.
Wonder if leaving my cell phone exposed
Portends at least some day heading towards true freedom.
Bill Grace



Kaizen In Poetry

Poem Hunter and the others have brought here a great democracy
Some might even say a beginning to the end of therapeutic theocracy
And although poets write and write with hope of being read
We often fail and are ignored instead
It is well we remember in this dilemma
To strive for better form and clearer phrase
Continuous improvement of our craft with God given days
For though poetry counts for little in this world's weal
Perhaps by unkown alloy we help keep
The universe from becoming total steel.

Name on the Wall

Staying in the Navy Lodge
There was the poster of a close up a portion
Of the Viet Nam War Memorial Wall
I looked for my name
But could not find it
Bill Grace



On Being Trapped

Sometimes we are trapped
Better not to feel but to react
The lieutenant who under fire called a meeting of his men
To another realm of God's universe did his indecision send
With feelings will come the true safety of the day
But first you may have a dragon that you have to slay.
Bill Grace
