"...feeling funny / But not in a way which could make me laugh"


Nobody But Me and Everybody

Reaching for personal intimacies
Left for dead in an avalanche of debt
Straining for everlasting verities
Left alive with existential regret

Losing my money and feeling funny
But not in a way which could make me laugh
I am alone but the sky is sunny
Better off free without a better half

The biological imperative
To perpetuate and to multiply
Would seem to last as long as we men live

But having played my part in this now I
Enjoy the company of those who were
Perpetuated so successfully

Back in the days of family with her
The mother of my children who was wise
Enough to remarry to my surprise

Which I thought I might do myself but no
It was not to be at least not with she
Who is someone else's trophy now so

Nobody here but me and poetry
Nobody but me and everybody

Philosophically whimsical and yet most meaningful, Stevie. Thank you. Love and peace to you, my friend.

Nice sentiment. I like the mixture of hope and sadness - that's a place we all know, yet we often try to force ourselves into one or the other.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 12/2/2005
Yes and poetry can be one's true friend which will never truly desert you no matter how old we get or how down we become, a crayon and a piece of cardboard and we can still function as poets. Hmnn now perhaps that is a good line to use in a poem old buddy...
