    He has the right background to be a poet, going to Harvard and meeting Robert Lowell, a major poet. All Leary needs to do now is write more and more.

    Very original, thought-provoking poems. When I have time, I will read his other poems.

Death Wait

Death, wait, wait I have more things to do
I’ll take care of what’s left of me
Just wait, wait, my son’s not ready
The boat’s not finished
Horses need to be fed, bridles cleaned.
Death, wait, wait I have more things to see
China waits, the Russian Steppes,
Wars will end and I’ll walk though
The Khyber Pass on my way to you
