Best Poem of Ben Gieske

A Tower Of Power

We will build a tower
With unbridled spring-water attitudes
Flowing with fires of charity
For all the suffering multitudes
Dispossessed and swallowing poverty
We will give them power

We will build a tower
With lots of windows and no ears
With promises for those who have ceased their quest
For the young and old in years
For those who no longer turn west
We will give them power

We will give them power
Give them tomorrows and rainbows in tomorrow’s flowers
Help them fill pitchers with milk, honey, and cream
Reap the green of crops they have ...

In Her Office

He slips into her office and
settles in a chair comfortably
while she cuddles the phone to her ear attentively.

Moments of revery - What kind of person could she be?

candy dish, dictionary, zip code book, letters ready to be mailed,
stapler, paper clips, note pad, files opened and empty spaces arranged across her desk
