The Beach, NC   
The crowd applauded the fiddler
-- as he rosined up his bow
and they cheered him on steadily
-- until the banjo stole the show.

NOT CURRENTLY ACTIVE...TRY BACK TOMORROW

"It was a good poem,"
the poet said to his poet friend.
"I think your best work yet."

The poet offered a smirk
as he watched his wadded-up poem float away.
"It doesn't matter, no one would have read it anyway."

It’s a patchwork world
Full of patchwork people
Made up from pieces of last year’s lives

And patchwork families
Share patchwork time
Eating quiet meals from take-out dives.

With patchwork feelings
And patchwork ties
Too many husbands and too many wives.

A 2-minute drill poem.  Whenever I feel like I can't write I try to write a short poem in 2 minutes.  Sometimes they aren't bad.
