And We Are Merely Charting Our Map For Survival.


we write not because
we want to be read, we write because
everyday we are trying to read the pages
of ourselves and to keep ourselves
posted we write what we have read
just us and if it happens that you read us
and then you shake your heads thinking that we are just crazy threads
well, that is just a secondary consequence
we are the cause and you are nothing but an effect
which we do not really need.

Life is hard. We agree. And we are merely
charting our map for survival.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
