(August 27,1948 / Brooklyn, New York)

A SINGULAR BLESSING


A SINGULAR BLESSING
Edward Iacona

This blessing is for those of us
Who have surely felt bereft.
From losing one so close and loved
That changed their heart and left.

For those that felt their soul mate
Made vows they would never renege.
For experiencing our legal system
That costs an arm and a leg.

For losing the things that brought you joy
Including old records pressed in vinyl.
May you win millions in the lottery,
After your divorce is final.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
