  69.     

And God Made A Poet

There need to be people
toiling on this Earth
for whom money
is not the Bottom Line

those who see
beyond the moment
the temporal frame of inhuman
nature

to lead with voice of spirit
and marked uncommon sense.


(Previously published in Some Words: A Place For Poetry, Aug.2004)

  70.     

Anjou

My pear are so
Delightful, I must speak now
With a fake French accent

And say, oui oui
Come come
The time is ripe

To peel away the pretense
And taste the sweet aperitif
To everlasting

Joie de vivre.


(Previously published in The Short North Gazette, Nov.2000)

  71.     

Another Cup of Tea?

There are poets
In comfortable houses
Clean beds
Who write of grass and trees and
Flowers
They sing melodies that concord
On tuneful ears
Sing babies to sleep
And say

All the world is well.

‘Twould be nice to be
Such a poet
To not know and not care
Not really
Not seeing, not dreaming
Not alive, not dead
Just falling
Like a green leaf on a
Summer’s day.


(Previously published in Apollo's Lyre, Spring 2007)

  72.     

Artful Dodger

Motifs in my life
Recur in my art

Like some persistent beggar
Demanding some final
Restitution

For the travesties he's
Endured.


(Previously published in Psychopoetica, No.45, Spring 2000; The Poet's Porch, Jan.2001)
