today's dream, tomorrow's fame

elder age,
calmer cage.
I remain calm
even if everyone screams.
I continue writing
despite that someone is spying.
watchful eyes speak
as CitiScapes make an escape at the Peak.
Unexpected dreams---
Floating wish on Mississippi stream.
unspoken thoughts
Condensed lines on my finger tips.
Today's hope
Tomorrow's reality or fame on an iron hope.

Henderson Coffee Crisis

Never mind FirstBanc 9th street,
No need to go crazy about Lebanon Peet cafe,
Edward Lee has gone explicit,
Peter Brinn shops for midnight buffet.
a sip of evanston Sherman,
a tip from Morton Cohen,
The casino keeps spinning,
The Indian masters keep pow wowing.
Ladette Randolph edits poems,
Kathleen Rutledge cuts lawns,
Henderson coffee runs short,
Jerry Yang grows bored.
a pannel of writers,
a book of hints and verse,
Ted Kooser is pushed by
waves of thoughts, provided by
