    • POEM: Paradise Motel by Charles Simic (2/4/2009 5:33:00 PM)

      AFRAID

      To email my poem to
      Charles Simic, but I do.

      To watch his eyes examine
      a bike with broken training wheels
      kid bleeding from a fall.

      Too much to fathom.

      But there
      in Santa’s red thread
      under the tree
      a gift wrapped beauty

      To: Bob.

      Angels hover closer.
      Inside the blue box is
      Charlie’s gift:
      a diamond sculpture
      of his newest poem,
      Deleted.

    • POEM: Introduction To Poetry by Billy Collins (12/27/2008 4:07:00 PM)

      DEAR BILLY COLLINS

      Where’s the one
      where you crawl under skin
      pierce the bad man’s heart
      get dirty with the homeless
      save the world from annihilation?

      You waterski and wave,
      dropp a mouse and feel for a switch,
      press an ear and see the light.

      Superman, yes!
      Or is it Clark Kent?

      I see you working at the Planet
      reclined in your favorite chair
      more powerful than a locomotive.
      Feel you forming your next word,
      bending steal with bare hands.

      But, where’s the one that speaks
      of pain, of fear, of vice and sin?

      I want to be your neighbor on Lois Lane
      lined with elm trees and picket fence.

      Very truly yours, Bob Beers
