I’d like to share two poems published in the last week or so that I hope you will enjoy. Do let me know what you think!

My poem abecedarian pomp & circumstance, circa 1987, was my first (and so far, only) attempt at this particular form of poetry. I wrote it after a workshop I attended via Zoom and, another first for me, this one appears in The Lake, a UK-based online poetry journal.

The second piece is a prose poem I wrote after a disastrous lunch with my son who lives near St. Louis. We don’t, on occasion, get along too well and this was a perfect example of just that. It’s called The Incident and was published today in Red Ogre Review, another online journal.

One of my prose poems was published today in The Metaworker Literary Magazine, an online journal.

It’s a bit of a departure from what I usually write.  Well,  maybe.  I do tend toward the quirky and the weird and the odd, don’t I?  🤓

Anyway, it’s called The Furrowing and it is the second prose poem of mine to be published here. I hope you will enjoy it.

As always, thank you for LOOKING!

Post Script: For the sake of completeness, here’s the link for the first one. 🙂

though he knows

for his brother’s sake

that he must
