The FAB&PP Poem of the Month for March 2007


the jaw conspires with the
dayís routine
the unmedicated night gives way
to the morning and new distress

variations on the theme of late
middle age
and inglorious rage against
time used up

wondering as he slips his way along
the february ice
if the distraction isnít better than
contemplation and maybe

the cacophany of aches should be
his boon companion
preferable to the ultimate
anesthesia
