Best Poem of Carol Fleming Klein

Drinking Gourd

Big Dipper
Arrow to the pole star
Floating vessel in the heavens

Slaves escaping north followed you
to freedom
Did they work harder, fear more
cry more silent tears?
Did they taste numbness,
did they reach past despair
to hope
as I must?
Did they catch a vision in the night
of free air?

Oh Drinking Gourd
these haunting visions,
will the night never end?
Sailors trusted you to lead them home.
Where's my pole star?
Where are you Dipper, now?

I'm tired of drifting
I'm tired of endless sea
tired of
new ...

My Mask

Oh God look down
I ‘m such a foolish clown
I know you smile.
But hold me for a little while.
I laugh to make the hurt recede.
I joke around to hide my need.
But it's such a wearisome task
To constantly adjust my mask.
And I'm afraid someday “I'll” slide
And show the tears I hold inside.

Spring 1980
