The Road to 65, Mile 323: Extra

October 16, 2015, Prescott- 

It was a day off, of sorts, and I recouped some energy. This is directed at a person, in a school, who looks at people like me, and shows only disdain.

Early morning invitation,

to increase my aggravation.

A polite decline,

no extra time,

to spend on one

who talks a line

of superiority and


those like me

whose love is free

and time-tested.

You, who walk with upturned nose

will soon realize aloneness,

I suppose.

As you sit in your seat,


Remember, those of us

who give, the extra.

  1. I so wish that your hobby were publishing your poems. I am going to buy the 2016 Poets’ Market which has all sorts of ways to publish or find substantial monetary compensation via contests and magazine/journal submissions.
