It Was This Big

I want to fly
like a fishhook
tied by that guy
in that old book
I never read
whose author’s dead
who dreamed of streams

What Did We Do

Arrest your fears
don’t panic yet
When the smoke clears
they may forget
and something new
will take their view
We'll be scot-free

Apropos(ish) of the title (NOT the content, really!) of my poem, by wonderful coincidence 20 minutes after it posted I received an email from Susi Bocks saying the anthology of poetry “The Sound of Brilliance” had been published and is available! Susi created this anthology from poems that were part of the “The Short of It” series she created and hosts on her site “I Write Her” (which you should all subscribe to). I am happy 😁 🎉 to say there are three ha’sonnets of mine – “Sweet Little Lies,” “Out of Context,” and “We Can’t Go Back” – included among the many wonderful poems by great poets in the collection!
It is available in both paperback (here) and eBook (here) version on Amazon.
