The Spot


There is a spot
where one wall meets
the other
at a quiet angle
and the stairway
stops awhile
for a short breath
to resume again
in a cascading tumble....
there is a blotch there
on the wall
an ugly, filthy stain
of red spit
gathered over years
or ages, who knows
demolishing all culture
ripping all sense
of civility
spread like a uncouth paw
big and savage.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
