GLOVED

Submerged in Edelmann daydreams
of pushing buttons and fixing holes,
I find myself adrift—
a nowhere man floating
with all the lonely people in a sea of monsters,
doing my darnedest
to avoid the meanies of mindless politics
and a rising death toll.
Just when I think it’s all too much,
birdsong pierces Pepperland
and, with a little help from my friends,
I realize we’re all together now
and all you need is love.


While I realize many may not be able to fully appreciate this poem, I am unapologetic. All I will say is Edelmann refers to the creator of the animated film The Yellow Submarine. If you are not familiar with the movie or the eight Beatles song references, please take the time to look them up. The message is timeless and much needed these days.

National Poetry Month - May 1, 2020...yeah, I know.

Sooo... the poem says it all. You would think after 29 days of posting a poem a day for National Poetry Month I would have the sense to post one last poem to finish it off. You'd think...


If you've been writing, keep writing...even if you don't think anyone will read it...even if you think it's not good enough...just...keep...going. You never know where it will lead you. ;)

The neighborhood really is pretty in the Spring... I hope you all have a beautiful day.

GISH

Starchy shrapnel
covers the cutting board--
evidence of a warped mind driven 
to carve a couch potato.



GISH... I cannot be held responsible for my actions. It's Misha's fault.
