“maybe I can help”

“Ah, yes, you want to be a writer don’t you?”

“You say that as if it’s a bad thing”

“No, no. just a lonely thing. Sometimes the world you create on the page seems more friendly than the lives in the world you actually live in.


Poet’s songs enchant us all
There’s a rhyme to everything.
And maybe it repeats,
In a sunset on a sandy beach.
And maybe it stands still,
In a forest pond-a gentle jewel.
And it’s always some kind of pattern,
With some kind of feeble life.
And the rhythms ever growing,
In bursts of joy and blows of strife.
So push forward through it all
And scream in bitter rage
To see the ironic beauty
In these burning, shinning days.
