Thank you to those who support me via my Paypal account: rikwrybac@yahoo.com. 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.

THANK YOU!

Strawberries (after William Carlos Williams)

I have eaten
the strawberries
that were
in the refrigerator

There is no one
for whom
I should save them
or to whom
I may apologize
for my gobbling them
greedily with sugar

They were delicious
with sugar
that I should not have

I am alive this day
and don't care about
yesterday or tomorrow

today I had strawberries
