OK… Two Bad Poems

in Poetry

Anachronism is my poeming BitCoin. I inflate value and hack away at any old saw to dust up the notion that the bit and byte is only for the nascent. Court and spark and carbon date gave me the giggles.

And “give ‘em enough trope” was a rope-a-dope on which to hang my literary pretensions, which had already been, and drop dead quickly, disabused.

So, sowing some woe is me. Maybe.

Up with Chemistry

We didn’t court
and spark
as much as
carbon date

It’s chemical
you cautioned:
in tie-dyed

Science as
an inhibitor?
I countered-
as gravity
the question


angel’s share

I have written
give ‘em enough trope
aimed my ink
with a sniperscope
damn careful
not to interlope
nor forget
the angel’s share

having noted
I once lived in exile
made current
those memories erstwhile
with some bitter prose
to reconcile
and reimburse
the angel’s share

writing rewards
fictions of recompense
while talents
a tally of consequence
a perspired desire
left to condense
and provide
the angel’s share

Angels’ share is a term for the portion (share) of a wine or distilled spirit’s volume that is lost to evaporation during aging in oak barrels.


I’m spry yet retired. I reside in the inner city of a major metropolitan area of the United States. I read politics. I watch baseball. I hum along with the tune. I June swoon, and moon the bad poem. Post here, are old and new. Opinions are my very own, except when wrong.
