Half a sonnet

a lost fragment of thought
strung along by a wandering mind
the cold uninspired hand wrought
with guilt over unspent time
strung along by a wandering hand
laughing in disgust at time left languid
with burgeoning guilt over futures began
and lost fragments of what’s already been said.


This is still a work in progress.

In other news, July's Poetry Now is still at press but will be available this week sometime. It's a great issue with poetry from Art Beck, Mildred Hunt, BL Kennedy, Kathy Kieth, Arthur Winfield Knight, Joyce Odam, Bonnie Rollin, Pearl Stein Selinsky, Philip A Waterhouse, and Diane Webster; plus, Carol Frith reviews Kathy Kieth's Why We Have Sternums. It's a great issue. You can download it from www.sacramentopoetrycenter.org next month...

And you haven't done so already, check out Kathy Kieth's blog: http://medusaskitchen.blogspot.com/
