Bloodletting (+1)

Kurt Philip Behm

Real poets don’t make lasting friends

they shun fraternity

Their truth like gritty sandpaper

abrasive when intoned   

The reader may be gratified

with what the words uncover

More likely though the pain involved

— will cut them to the bone


(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)



Legacy Awaits



secured in beauty …

carved high in a tree


spread and offer cover

of your history


comes and bares the promise

Spring will shade anew


in the bark awaiting

— progeny to view
