Do Not Disturb


The discretionary sign
hung from the doorknob
of the door to the room
in dallas in a holiday inn
untouched by your hand

come clean another day
buy me time to neatly lay
plastic in the bathroom
compose a goodbye note
load the pistol with only
one bullet or reconsider

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,
