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)




Thinking the worst

of people

life has cast a pall


To cover my


— and camouflage the fall


(Dreamsdleep: February, 2024)



Warring Words



are the bravest  

writers …

you know who you are




the Johnny Come Latelys

battered up and scarred


Each word


born of pain

raised in discontent


Dying once

to live again


— to relent


(Dreamsleep: February, 2024)





First and foremost

success is an

entrepreneurial venture

— not a management exercise


(To Dartmouth Students: January, 2012)
