    Hello Forrest. My name is Larry B. Stell; just completed a book of poetry and I have several poems on this website, poemhunter.com, under my name.
    Your comments in the poem, Lesson, reminded me of a trip I took from a university summer program in Colorado back to Little Rock, Arkansas. The director asked if Jimmy Lieb, a student (African American) could ride with me and my German wife back to Little Rock, about 1965....my wife and I were refused service in a restaurant in Oklahoma but the owner said he had to, by law, serve Jimmy. I think I will use this as a theme in a forthcoming poem.......any ideas?

And the old men, supervising grown grandsons, nephews,
any man a boy given this chance of making
a new sidewalk outside the apartment building where
some of them live, three old men and their wives,
the aging unmarrying children, and the child
who is a cousin, whose mother has sent her here
because she doesn't know what to do with her,
she's out of control, she wants to be a gangsta, and
the old folks talk to her as if she minds them
