“New”! Poetic Much? 12/22/21


by C. Derick Miller




This is something new

I don’t know how

Or what to do

I’ll wake each day

With no alarm

No clocking in

Or mental harm

To write the words

To read the book

To talk the talk

Risk all, I took

I’ve known not this

Not since my youth

Before brainwashing

Rehearsed couth

But where to start

I must inquire

That burning bridge

Revenge desire

Forsaking me

Forsaking most

Forsaking none

This glass, I’ll toast
