It’s been a revelation
Writing these pieces

How often I have been in love —
Or thought I was —
How many friends
Have touched my life

I stand here tonight,
By this grill —
By happenstance, I am
The only one at home —

And I realize that
For years
I painted a portrait of myself
At variance
With the actual life
I’ve led

I’ve hardly been a loner
And I’ve experienced enough
For several lifetimes —
Much of it

The steak’s almost ready

And so, I think

Am I

13 Thoughts to “Sizzle

      1. Thank you for the compliment. I also love reading your poetry and am happy I found your blog. I know you’ve posted recently that you plan to slow down on writing in the new year, but I do hope you won’t stop altogether! 🙂

  1. There is a saying that you can’t sing the blues without having lived them. I think the same applies to poetry. And you are a master, in my opinion. Keep writing!
