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 ...

Sonnet Fifty Five


Between the published
Self-published and not
And a baker’s dozen
Of other possibilities
The randomness of success
Defies all understanding
And the vagaries of
Popular taste bother
Me not in the least

But what I find extremely
Vexing about my
Present circumstances
Both as a person and a poet
Is the titillation provided
By the least sign of
The world’s interest in my work
And how the smallest increase
In page views per day transforms
Itself into a perceptible bounce
In my own sense of self-worth
