    Youth

    Strange bird,
    His song remains secret.
    He worked too hard to read books.
    He never heard how Sherwood Anderson
    Got out of it, and fled to Chicago, furious to free himself
    From his hatred of factories.
    My father toiled fifty years
    At Hazel-Atlas Glass,
    Caught among girders that smash the kneecaps
    Of dumb honyaks.
    Did he shudder with hatred in the cold shadow of grease?
    Maybe. But my brother and I do know
    He came home as quiet as the evening.


    He will be getting dark, soon,
    And loom through new snow.
    I know his ghost will drift home
    To the Ohio River, and sit down, alone,
    Whittling a root.
    He will say nothing.
    The waters flow past, older, younger
    Than he is, or I am. read more »

    Black N White (Cloak N Dagger Poem)

    I've always been a man who treasures black and white.
    One either is still breating or one must be dead,
