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


      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,

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


      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
