Premium Member The Hotel Caretaker
How unparticular the day had particularly been,

On March the third of two-thousand and eighteen,

‘Twas Sunday when all the guests had fled,

From either...

He was living quiet in skies.
Without disputes, without roughness,...

if still mostly concealed...

that once intrigued us so.

Come then, let us...

Poetry
by Michael R. Burch

Poetry, I found you
where at last they chained and bound you;
with devices all around you
to torture and confound you,
I found you—shivering, bare.

They had shorn your raven hair

The poet delves earth’s detritus?hard toil?
for raw-edged nouns, barbed verbs, vowels’ lush bouquet;
each syllable his pen excretes?dense soil,
dark images impacted, rooted clay.

The poet sees the sea but...

The world is unsalvageable ...

that our flesh
does not despair
of love

Insecure, Illuminating Ill-tempered, Invigorating Icicle I once Was
I’m stronger than I realize,

Feeling like a Jailure

I was brave enough
Life can be quite rough

Forever forgive me
For my one and only iniquity
