Birthday Tribute

It’s likely/ It could be

That when Leonard Bernstein,

At his piano bench…

It was very late when he,

In a creative trance,

Had opened an envelope

From a Mr. Stephen Sondheim,

And started to work on

A musical phrasing for

“There’s a place for us”,

He eyedropped a gold teardrop

Into a test tube, & heaven reacted,

 

& now can make me ache

20,000 late nights after

.

Happy birthday, Mr.Stephen Sondheim

Since the day before Donald Trump’s inauguration, filmmaker Ethan Coen (brother to Joel) has been a writing politically-tinged poems as a blogger for the Huffington Post, penning articles such as “Be Fair!“, “Wasn’t Wanted,” and my personal favorite, “Oh Where Did Your Balls Go, Paul Ryan?” (His bio reads, “Ethan Coen is a totally overrated filmmaker. Sad!”)…

Knocking On A Locksmith’s Door

Filed under: Uncategorized — namelessneed @ 11:48 am

 

 

I need to knock on a locksmith’s door.

It’s trying   on my entrance in

It has me hammering   for him,

The  man outside, stands right in a stance

On his  home mat.

My security windows live up to their damn claim.

Cats perched there can watch me.

I Calmly curse in the rain,

Calm for keys  that Mercy sees

Cures to unlatch me.
