A New Year’s poem

I wrote this in 2015. Erica Jong sent me a message saying “Save the good ones”


No revising

this one.

No revisiting

that one

Try to

find

new words

for

old problems.

Try to

save the

good ones.

 

Remember.

Repeat.

Remember.

Repeat.

 

I will be

the

poetry person

among

the

book people.

If I can’t
have you right now,
I’ll wait here.

April 3, 2017  Poetry Prompt #3 – Write about your father or father figure

I
once gave
Dad
a poem
for
Father’s Day
when I was
younger

I
once gave
Dad
writing on green paper
for
Father’s Day

younger
