" please do not hate / Me for the fool which I can be and bear with me // I have a few tricks left which you might like to see"

Transcendental Sonnet #1389:

A Few Tricks Left


My readers do not care for one another

They each read me for varying reasons

Red states versus blue brother against brother

Euros and Brits through varying seasons

With the only commonality mere me

In my maddening multiplicity


"How could you write that?" some ask as my white hat

Fades to black and some attack as it slips


But then after awhile most come to grips

With the fact that sometimes I lack the tact

Which I would have if only my mother

Were here to set me straight: so please do not hate

Me for the fool which I can be and bear with me


I have a few tricks left which you might like to see

I don't see how anyone could hate you, Stevie. Thank you for sharing your sentiments. I am in constant wonder as to how you can write so much. I feel truly blessed to get one "poem" per week. Usually, it comes through a dream deeply in the darkness of night. Love and peace to you, my friend. Regis
