Dan Reynolds


180 Second Freefall

Somewhere in the debris, hid
beneath the poet’s workshop
post-its, napkins, bus tickets
are jockeying for position.

Somewhere in the middle ground
between the ink and sweat stains
an idle thought is floating on
the jetsam of the day

somewhere in the subterfuge
of someone’s idle tryst
a motion that was carried falls
across the starting line

somewhere in vacuity
confusion coaches chaos
and maelstroms of Minerva’s hair
are lashing sun- bleached skin

somewhere in a psyche
of a weeping villanelle
a poet lays his pen down soft
to bid one last farewell.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
