Best Poem of Charles Chaim Wax

No Expectation Of Reward

Being the union guy at Spinoza HS
created a morsel of interest to the day
like when Darwin Dix showed up
his hair a bunch of purple spikes
a good ten inches off his skull
held upright by some fancy gel
from Italy I never heard of.
Chairperson Linda wrote him up
declaring his appearance demented
thus hindering the children’s education.
“A poet don’t play by your rules, ”
I informed her, knowing the union had
gone to court on this one:
No dress codes for teachers.
Darwin wrote a poem in my honor:
The Real Big Boss of the Universe
sent it off, ...

Read the full of No Expectation Of Reward

I Refused The Glance

a tiny man
in a toy coffin
eight years
my best buddy
kidneys dead
spent
endless
hours each week
captured by the machine
