Retrospective of an Honest Man - after Clark Stillman


RETROSPECTIVE OF AN HONEST MAN
By night: fight, flight
quite out of sight.
By day: mayday
in way on site,
blight; bite, spite, slight.
Payday: heyday
way O.K. … right?
Tight, slight respite.

AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN HONEST MAN
During the night
I was out of sight;
During the day
I was in the way.

Poem of the Day

We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
