diatribes

who needs excuses for diatribes equal opportunity gods have ensured
reasons uniformly accessible to rich and poor
to you and me the world over

A beautiful day for the poets. To rage. Rage. Against the dying of the light. The blanking of the verse. The taking of the nap.

no escape

unreal reality
existential dilemma

mid sea
in oarless boat

this drifting
called life
claims its dues

there is no choice
there is no escape

the sepia photo 
found tucked in a book

this heat this three showers a day humidity will be recalled fondly ensconced by the fireplace at home

fickle stealthy strikes unexpectedly in odd places and invariably they ask 'what's the matter with you?'
