Death of a Poet


Penetrating a collapsing inquiry.
All to smile?
O.
A pill bottle,
Glinting under the desk lamp.
Glowing orange like lit coal.
Inside a diligent heart.
Enough rhythm to molest
An inner narrative.
An image in verse
Must serve a purpose.
To the muses of yore
I sing!
This cadence...
A caffeine headache.
A slave to existential
Circumstance.
I borrow meaning
From essays written
About philosophy.
Never considering
Why?

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
