Poems, MIA

January 10, 2011 at 7:56 pm (Uncategorized)

I wonder how many poems I’ve lost
to naps too good to miss, to ringing
telephones, to endless distractions
like doorbells and dogs barking.

Has my life’s work come and gone,
seeped out of my brain
to Sunday football games and Jeopardy,
to tea boiling and biscuits burning?

I fear
a dozen books of poetry lost
and nothing gained
but a life.
