Patron

I now have one regular patron who sends a monthly contribution to keep this poet alive. Yes, per usual, I'm a poor poet...and for some reason I'm a poor poet in its many meanings...but someone like my patron loves my work. If you become a sustaining patron I can guarantee you'll see writing from me on a regular basis. I do edit my work...like mad. But I don't always hit it out of the park. At least my patrons have a chance to select from all my work...and they become the editors rather than the small-minded who often edit magazines and journals. Poet James Wright,one of his last books, held by two editors for the longest time that his wife Anne took to another publisher who snapped it up and it became a huge success. Now I don't have people like Robert Bly, Don Hall, or their equals I can send my poems to for a review before I put them on the internet or send to any publisher. I believe in opening up my "horde" for the world to critique or love. And it's expensive to send out my work, getting only rejection, so it's money I don't have for food, or the electric bill. Please send what you can via my email: rikwrybac@yahoo.com via Paypal. I thank those who support me one way or another.

THANK YOU!

Suddenly Bach

and I'm on the sofa
in the livingroom
of the old house
It's E. Power Biggs
Bach
Bach
Bach
Jig Fugue
and I'm a little boy
who sees the world
through that energy
now
I'm listening to it again
as an old man
suddenly on the radio
suddenly Bach
and a surge of youth
stiffens my aching back
with all the pain
disappearing
I'm once again
a little boy
with his life ahead of him
laying on the sofa
Mother in the kitchen
dancing as she cooks
Welsh rarebit
Dad in his den
with the door closed
