Best Poem of David McLansky

9/11

Breathing ashes and blackened soot,
'Put a towel against the door, '
'Wet it first, put it on the floor; '
'The Firemen were on the way, '
That's what 911 said that day;
But I've always had an ornery streak,
When told to obey and to be meek,
We were told to wait in that fiery din;
'Be patient, the firemen were coming in; '
But I rebelled; I could not sit still,
I would not cling to the windowsill,
I was tired of always following orders,
I had to think of my two daughters;

Depression

My many moods swing
My Day
They swing me from the dawn,
They break me big,

'Till I think I can't go on;
At that event
They do relent,
Until they drop me into sleep
And then in dreams
I awake in screams
From which
I groan and weep

[Hata Bildir]
