One Poet Too Many
In the dank underground passage
I write poems.
Crumpled on the ground is the poet,
Oblivious commuters rush by,
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!
The rush hour hordes
In the dim tunnel light,
Zen Curb Appeal
Three rangy city pigeons
He has removed his shoes,
He is still and centered,
The filthy puddle,
A lifelong expert on impermanence,
