Daedalus in his heart wept
While far below plunged Icarus

The artificer flew on,joyful to have left his labyrinth
Broken to see...Read More

Eager to talk to anyone
Who cares to stop
So lonely being a...Read More

Sins of Our Fathers Categories: discrimination, father son, growing up, growth, music, Form: Political Verse
I suspect my dad silently hoped,
vicariously needed his dream
I would become a multi-talented musician.

but also hidden within unspoken fear
of Catholic influence
when I was invited to join
The Vienna Boy's Choir.

A Little Boy Categories: 10th grade, children, emotions, father son, happy, Form: Imagism
A Little Boy is
Jelly on his face
Dirt under his nails
A patch on his knee

One pocket and
A frog in the other

A bag of marbles in
His right hand and
Licorice in the left
He’s a cowboy today

Sausage and eggs breakfast by my side
