Best Poem of Tom J. Mariani

1968 Talking About The Revolution

I took off my glasses
that I might see
I took off my shoes
that I might be

The one I was in search of
The one I never had
The one that by finding
I would be so glad

I took off my watch
so I wouldn't know the time
I took off to nature
hoping to find the sign

The one I was in search of
The one I never had
The one that by finding
I would be so glad

I started to take of my clothes
I thought the last distraction
Then luckily I realized - - -
This is just a poem- - - an abstraction

Lovers Leap

Love is a leap
No matter what they say
Whether it is forever
A season or just a day

For we don't fall in love
Rather we leap at each other
Once we recognize the spark
We think it will never smother
