HEITZ/STUART: Stuck At Home
POEM TO THE EDITOR from TOM HEITZ, SHARON STUART

Stuck At Home

Stuck at home
Wrote this poem

Had some lunch
With Captain Crunch
Washed the dish
Made a wish

Fed the cat
Found my hat
Broke a mirror
Bad luck here

Made the tea
Had to pee
Sun went down
Moon is round

Took a fall
In the hall
Bumped my head
Went to bed

Drank some booze
Took a snooze
Up at dawn
Mowed the lawn

Stuck at home
Wrote this poem

April, After The Shower

POEM TO THE EDITOR

April, After The Shower

Under the rainbow
In a world as sparkling clean
As washed crystal
The tulip bud swells and colors
At the end of a pale green wand,
The fat pink earthworm
Jiggles on the wet asphalt,
And the eager young man
Still holding up the umbrella
Goes right on talking sweet dirty
Into his girlfriend’s ear –
Until he blushes
At his own cheekiness
And loses the moment.

Rill Mischief

POEM TO THE EDITOR

Rill Mischief

Underground splashing, a steady hollow gurgle under glassy bubble ice and this winter’s snow.

Uneven at first, then the steady rhythm of the search for downhill.

Water always takes the easy way, especially when no one is watching.
