The Way Some Poets Roll
I rec’d a submission letter today, so I thought,
The poet had no poems in his letter
The business card said, "A Moment in Infinity”
His cover letter stated he had been locked up
And that I should go to his web-site
A “Moment in Infinity”
I repeat to myself

Opens his almond eyes
To grope for his glasses
Gets up from his bed
Heads to the bathroom
To shake a cereal box
Then he grabs the charged cellphone
Later brushes his teeth with a stick
Marches to the front door
To the carport
Rolls along driveway to the gate
Pulls into parking lot
