The 50 Dollar A Day Poet - Poem by Kurt Philip Behm

The 50 dollar a day poet
Spending more—saving less
Trying to find it
Before it finds him
In a world deep in anguish
And regret

The 50 dollar a day poet
Not mentioned in any journal
Or tome
35 dollars for the room
And 10 for food,
—5 lonely dollars by the phone

(Villanova Pennsylvania: October,2015)
