Rookie (1975 - 2008)

Dams On The Cuyahoga


Just west
of the Lake,
meanders
the burning river.

The river
in my dreams.

The river on fire.

The river
that oozes

rather than flows.

The river
in which
a person
does not drown

but decays.

And there
the river sits,

waiting for me
to come back home.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
