R.Benjamin Abate Poems

Nothing is
Ever as
Good or as

Bad as it
...

Blood orange champagne
Too far gone
You look at your drink
Then back at me
...

She told you that her sister was killed by a drunk driver & you still have
The nerve to drive
Drunk-
...

Waiting for you
To walk by
So they can let go
Of their lifeline
...

I've seen many faces
Fed many birds
Talked to dogs
I've danced with cats
...

Innovators at our best
We give ourselves & forget
Get good feelings
Then we impress
...

I am your Dreamcatcher
the net which captures
Your deepest thoughts
Your deepest wishes
...

Late at night a bearded man in a black trench coat - Black sunglasses - A kilt - Black boots & a Black beret waddled into a restaurant like a penguin with a bottle of Jameson wrapped in a brown paper bag in his hand & he began chanting & pointing at the normal people:

'I Love You who sit there eating your steak! '
...

9.

When I was a
Kid
A bug flew
Into my eye
...

I met an Egyptian Gypsy by the Dead Sea
She read my palm
Jumped in the sea
Then floated away from me
...

What happened
To the Innocent-
Dazzling-young girl
Who would search
...

When I was just
A boy
I would wake my
Father from
...

Skipping scallops
so she still swallows
her dessert-
she sits staring
...

Today, I Left
Carrots

On my
...

I made friends with a squirrel
Because I lost hope in humanity-
I made sense of the tales
That I once heard from my family-
...

While we talked on
The phone that night
I pictured you in pajamas
...

A country invades another country
While civilians flee to the hills for

Their lives
...

I had a
Dream that
I was watching
...

I'm like
A mimic
Octopus

I can change
...

Flicking
Red paint
On your face

Freckled fury
...

The Best Poem Of R.Benjamin Abate

Don'T Worry

Nothing is
Ever as
Good or as

Bad as it
Seems
To be

The mountains
Aren't too high
To climb

The sky
Isn't really
That blue

She's not
Really marrying
You for your personality

Your car won't
Start
But it will eventually

Money isn't as
Important as
Your kids

& The Teacher will
Smile at you after
You get the right answer

With that
Patronizing
Look on her face

That same look
Your mother gave you
When you first

Went to the bathroom
By
Yourself
