I Am Resolved

I am not one who dwells on the past, or, at least I try not to; for, unless one is fondly recalling, perhaps in a prayerful moment of divine gratitude, all the wonders and blessings the Begetter On High has begotten one, it is mostly a futile and potentially harmful self-flagellating exercise of ego worship …

Sorry

Sorry 'bout the homework. Sorry 'bout the room. Sorry 'bout the mix up With the chimney and the broom. Sorry 'bout the hamster. Sorry 'bout the bug. Sorry 'bout the purple stain In the middle of the rug. Sorry 'bout the superglue. Sorry 'bout the report card. Sorry 'bout the neighbor's cat I buried in …

Summing Up Maugham's OF HUMAN BONDAGE

Today is Ezra Pound’s birthday and I realize I don’t know much about him other than…

He did some edit work for TS Eliot... He boxed with Hemingway... He dug Japan... He was a Nazi...or was he a fascist?...or both? And...that's about it. So, to celebrate this day of the puzzlingly profound and persistently pedantic poet's birth, I am going to read what Wikipedia has to say about him and I …

My Town

All my life I've lived in a town Where stop means go And up means down, Where happy means sad And black means white, Where good means bad And wrong means right, Where night means day And yes means no, Where work means play And fast means slow, Where yesterday means tomorrow And midnight means …

Wiggle

I don't want to write bestsellers, Or be president of this great land. I don't want to paint like Picasso, Or sing in a rock and roll band. I don't want to star in the movies, Or do anything that brings wealth or fame. I don't want to be an overpaid athlete Of any professional …
