Is It Poetry

(1958 - / Bus-Boys And Poets, Washington D.C.)

boring routine


Facing unauthorized
copulation
my head is bagged
never really ready
one hole only
to breath from....
Silent silent silent
except for the dry crackling
of the bag...the head boards
sound like dry broken
ribs....pleurisy's groan
for wasting good musics
organ is a wanted forgotten
pipe unionized yet course.
It is religion needing always
new
bread utterly made fresh
when saved wretched waist
is from
some wandering soul to sing
through a whistled tooth
catching lisp this
familiarity drags me always
into the mirrors mouth
checking for a fresh twist on a
redundantly
boring lifeless routine made
soundlessly familiar...

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.
