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

Not A Pretty Sight

A poem should be a pretty thing
Or that is what I once thought
Really a poem touches you
Where you are and where you are not

As there's different types of touching
There's different types of poems
Some metered some rhymed
Some just a cry
