Left To Wander

Kurt Philip Behm

Left To Wander

 

Confusion’s underbelly

frustration’s embryo

Orphaned seeds of black and white

spread where nothing grows

Choices wander celibate

new pregnancy unfound

Up or down left to right

— dubiety impounds

 

(The New Room: February, 2024)

 

Incognito

 

Thinking the worst

of people

life has cast a pall

 

To cover my

intentions

— and camouflage the fall

 

(Dreamsdleep: February, 2024)

 

 

Warring Words

 

Poets

are the bravest  

writers …

you know who you are

 

Scattered

among

the Johnny Come Latelys

battered up and scarred

 

Each word

proffered

born of pain

raised in discontent

 

Dying once

to live again

unwilling

— to relent

 

(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)

 

 

Winning

 

First and foremost

success is an

entrepreneurial venture

— not a management exercise

 

(To Dartmouth Students: January, 2012)
