reaching for those darting figures
leaping over my fighting...

Raised by good parents, even well read,

Failure by Vincent Van Ross
The pinnacle
Of success lies
At the top
Of the staircase  

And,
Failure 
Keeps plotting…
To climb down
The stairs
Between 
My efforts
And
My achievements!

A symbol of my working past 
Sophisticated, young.

Loneliness by Eugene Harvey
Loneliness...
saddens the heart
boggles the mind
bedevils the flesh

heartens failure
compounds loss

Loneliness...
handicaps good
enlivens devilry
dangers wisdom

Loneliness...
hinders the spirit
cumbers the...

foliage’s veins and arteries burn.
One wonders if rain will return; 
the ground, an abstract of cracks.
Baked by the sunlight, 
plants retreat;...
