ten outta three ninety nine

three hundred and ninety-nine poems ago

there WAS a poet

inspired by the greats

by life’s adventures

by the need to purge and create

by slapping word-story onto the page…

three hundred and ninety-nine poems on the wall

put ém together and watch ten fall

shake ém out and toss ém about

ten worthy of even mentioning

maybe….

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...

  1. That was a great poem! So now you have 11 worth mentioning! Who decides which ones are worthy of mentioning anyway? You? Methinks you are too self-critical. I think you are one of the finest poets I know. Let me shake out those 399 poems. I bet I will come up with many more than 10 that deserve not just a mention, but deserve to be published!
