The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

A Poem Written On May 17th at 3 AM

During a pop quiz
In Mr. Murphy’s
Sixth grade English class
My brother once wrote
A fine short story
In the form
Of a note
That was scribbled
And rocketed into
Outer space
Just before
The world exploded
Writ in the same vein
I might add
As Barry Maguire’s
Hit song

And the same idea
Underlies tonight’s
3 AM poem
As many lyrics
Partake of similar form
Telling the story
Of a particular moment
Before all is forever gone
Of necessity brief and
Ending on a chilling note
