Well, are you?

(I was drawing
made-up flowers
on a coffee-stained
napkin as you
casually repeated
something that
matters to you)

Oh me? Oh no,
I’m new-fashioned,
I don’t fall in—
I don’t fall at all.
I’ve got an
unsteady stream
of insignificant others
who care too much
or not enough.

Bio (auto)

I am a retired social worker from Barnegat, New Jersey who has worked with developmentally / emotionally challenged adults. I have been writing poetry since I was a child. I recently had several of my poems published in a local magazine, and have been published in some anthologies. I love, love, love reading and writing poetry. I have recently ‘rescued’ a little dog from a local shelter. She joins another ‘rescue’ ( a cat named Poe), and my bischon ZuZu.

Eternity

The day you returned to me
the sky seemed as blue
as the day you left,
you said you had to go away
to save yourself from drowning,
and I waited,
like a sailor’s wife,
whispering your name
like a mantra,
as one long string
of endless moments
slipped into the next,
each one no more or less
different than the other,
except for your
absence.
