"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

when the machine breaks down

loss of bearings


no signposts

or dropped breadcrumbs

no path back


there is no  back

back is gone

rearview smashed


enough hammering you with metaphors bleak+apocalypse?


if you are over 60  you know well these themes

if you are over 90  you just don’t know


where you are

where everyone went

when your name will be called


and you can leave the land of constant indignity

and land on the shores of success


..may you sail the seas of ambition

and land on the shores of succcess..

(entry in poet’s autograph book 1965 /Joseph Marlieb)  


Fall 2022  ..all sissies will be shot on sight..
