finally finding a little poetry…been kinda dry lately


How Does the Artist See


that I carry

like the heaviness of a pack

on my body

the incalculable weight

of my loving her

needing support

for the imbalance

reaching out

to ordered objects

as a result

of a knee

that was bad

from the get-go

and bites at every bending

chained as it is

to my enormous hoary head

full and sprouting tangly thoughts

so that I face in all directions

begging mercy

of these stocks

that I create

  1. thank you. The artist is immensely talented – a fellow I hardly see and cannot find online…but truly, he whipped that sketch out sitting in a parking lot while I scheduled an appt. – he’s so talented
