Thank you to those who support me via my Paypal account: Please consider sending one, two, three, or more dollars a month. I consider myself a "third industrial revolution" poet. My current income is just $1039.00 a month. I receive SNAP and energy assistance. I wish I didn't have to ask the government for help. The government doesn't read my poetry. You do. Out of over 350 poems here on this blog by me, I hope you find one or more you like. It's why I'm asking you for help. Thank you if you can help me monthly.

So Early

Too many cups of tea
in the afternoon
just to taste something
other than plain water
to wet this dry gargle

Tired is sneaking
around my corners
lapping at my beaches
I can be gritty when
I'm not wearing shoes

Offenbach dance music
water sprites of the Rhine
through the glass wires
of the new age
with no water sprites

Sand has brought me music
to the edge of my beach
where a plane of water
stretches before me
mirrors drip with music
