    William I am unable to comment under your poems so I will say this about the piece entitled 'Sometimes I think I am Dorian Gray'...

    Elegant, memorable and satisfying to read. I love the way you have assumed the voice of the narcissist in such an involving, convincing way that draws the reader in.

Best Poem of William Jackson

A Bad Poem For The Ages

I thought I’d write a bad poem, one for the ages, signifying nothing.
Pavement suffocates the living earth just as bad poetry fills volumes.
Still, oblivious to the land’s rape, the masses enjoy sentimental blathering,
And all is well since professional wrestling rules even sports columns.

It matters little that only a select few appreciate the immortality of verse,
Or that God's world festers in the aftermath of inhumanity's touch.
Bread and circuses even now in this age soothe ignorance's curse.
To hope men feel soft earth, the wind, and grass is to expect too ...

Spontaneous Combustion

While the three elements
of any significant fire,
oxygen, heat, and fuel,
create flashovers cruel,
the complete explosion
of everything in the room
at 1500 degrees and at a rate
of 37 feet per second,
my soul bursts into flames
