    Many things in life were told not to do! Life's Magic teaches us to undo!

    Hello Forrest. My name is Larry B. Stell; just completed a book of poetry and I have several poems on this website, poemhunter.com, under my name.
    Your comments in the poem, Lesson, reminded me of a trip I took from a university summer program in Colorado back to Little Rock, Arkansas. The director asked if Jimmy Lieb, a student (African American) could ride with me and my German wife back to Little Rock, about 1965....my wife and I were refused service in a restaurant in Oklahoma but the owner said he had to, by law, serve Jimmy. I think I will use this as a theme in a forthcoming poem.......any ideas?

Initiation

After I stumbled through the gauntlet, after they had hit me
As hard as they could,
Some there only because there was someone else
To be brought in, I joined them
In greeting the new ones, the frightened and longing ones,
And I punched as hard and as much as I could, something
Filling in me I would tell you was a thrill
Only because I had no better word for it.
There was another word for it: violence
