Comments

Hello,i would like to introduce myself as THE SUBWAY POET! no offense too anyone. I enjoy playing around but i also enjoy drifting into uncharted areas of my mental curiosities. When i ride my subway cars i often dream of ideas which will transcend minds into enchanted creations written with poetic reservation.The poetry which i happen to scroll on subway posters does not touch everyone who takes time to read them.The poetry on the posters are far too complicated to the average person and the irony of it all is that it is only the average person who rides the subway. I often wonder what could have happened to the poetry which we learned as children.It was simple yet soothing, mysterious and magical and enjoyably is enchanting. I only wish that one day i can share this graciously gratifying gift which i feel i was blessed to share. Please allow me this opportunity to share with you this gift.....

Wishing Well.......
AMAZING MY THOUGHTS WHEN REACHING SO FAR,
INTO DEPTHS OF THE OCEAN FROM THE TOP OF A STAR.
DISTANT MY ECHOES FROM LONELY MY CHANT,
MAGNIFICENT MY DAY IF RUBBED FROM A LAMP.
STEADY SHE STARES THIS GLARE FROM THE SKY,
PERIFIAL MY VISION EVENT SHOULD I DIE
SILENT SCREAMS FROM SHADOWS AT SEA,
TRAPPED ARE ITS VOICES UNHEARD TO BE FREE.
WISHING WELL WISHING WELL WHICH WISH SHALL YOU LEND,
I WISH I HAD A MAGIC COIN,
WISHING WISHES NEVER END !

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
