With My Morning Coffee

With My Morning Coffee

All the crazy people
muttering whispering shouting
conversations with enemies unseen
except in their heads, facsimiles
of fears alive within.

I cannot help
I cannot bring
benedictions of silence;
arid my well of empathy.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.

    I’ve been absent far too long. You’ve been posting some great stuff, Ray. Can resonate with this one totally. A great piece.
