One thought on “A Poet’s Advice To Students

  1. This is the most recent:


    A story or two
    They’d tell out
    These folded fingers
    If gifted a fresh blush of
    Lips, palate, tongue

    A blessing this perhaps
    Or rather more a curse
    Or better still the both
    A confession, an absolution
    Each sat astride its mirror

    Hubris swallowed, spat out
    These crablike fingers
    Clutching at straws
    While nearby a camel
    Patiently awaits a breaking

    Oh, what a story
    They would spill
    Then two then three
    Then four than five
    These mottled fingers
