Biography of Richard Dates

I have been a teacher for many years. I previously taught in the Chicago area and now teach in New Mexico and have also been active in poetry groups and performance poetry in both areas.

I write many types of poetry. Some is quite serious, while much of my work is meant to be humorous and sometimes provocative. Updates


One day,
The so-called Laws of the Universe
Decided to go on vacation,
Having found their predictability
A source of boredom
They could no longer endure.

The first to slip free was Time!
Instead of progressing forward
