A Way Of Seeing

“. . . We love fog

because it shifts

old anomalies into

the elements

surrounding them.

It gives relief from

a way of seeing”

evil holocaust

man hates man hates the world

political hell

Poem:

.

the poet bordered on psychosis
inspiration derived by osmosis
his world viewed by anamorphosis
rhymes induced by self hypnosis

the ego seeks deification
dreams of heavenly exaltation
interrupted by bizarre personification
blinded by a frequent transfiguration

to write or not to write
twas never a question
his idea bulb was never that bright
‘why me’ was his favorite expression

and when it was all said and done
the blue ribbon he never won

And adventure.

And love.

Love above all.”

who doesn’t love a holey bagel
covered with a schmear of cream cheese
add a drizzle of honey from the bees
an appreciated staple for the breakfast table

the immigrants recipe came from an angel
everything or cinnamon raisin if you please
who doesn’t love a holey bagel
covered with a schmear of cream cheese

for many connoisseurs lox are a staple
a mixed bakers dozen are just a tease
all washed down with a juice you squeeze
finagle a bagel whenever you are able
who doesn’t love a holey bagel
