    I have just discovered Gary. He is very, very good. If he's not published he should be.

    I have read much of your work, sir.

    and I have enjoyed so much indeed,
    with special admiration, for the poems,
    A Face In The Crowd and I'm Dying In My Dreams.

    You have, in these pieces, and others that I read,
    a great capacity, to combine
    depth, brilliance and integrity.

    Thank you for the warmed pleasure, I was able to walk away with.

    Gary, I love your poems! they're dark, but it's the kind of dark that makes a person think about themself- it's all very good.

Best Poem of Gary Scott Gebert

A Face In The Crowd

At a distance I see you
with a look of distant sorrow
or perhaps my perception of what life is like
to someone with no hope

I study the features of your face
wondering what that gloom is
glistening black hair over your eyes
covering a secret I can feel from my seat

In my head I try to guess who you are
I play the game of discovery
only to forget that it's only a game
in which you play a part unknowingly

Are you happy with your life
perhaps not yet a question you can answer
until it's too late
until you discover want you want will never ...

Read the full of A Face In The Crowd

Somebody Else

Every so often I wish
I was someone happy
At times I dream of another time
another place, another body

Whether it be a man or woman
it seems not to matter
Only that I was young again
with the vigor to face the day...and night
