Thought I'd put up another poem and see how long this one stays on the new poetry page before it falls off the end. (The average seems to be about 1-2 days max unlike articles and stories which can hang around on the "new" list for a week or more.) Still it is interesting to see that in those fleeting one or two days on the "new" poetry assembly line the piece gets more hits and reviews than a lifetime in the articles and stories departments.
Is it just that poetry is so much more popular, I wonder, or is it a sign of the times that we only have time, and the attention span, to read the shorter stuff? Would be a good topic for a literary thesis by some budding literary master.
"Deception" is another selection from my published anthology "Life Lines" and came to me quite suddenly, as many of my poems do, as I contemplated how easily we get distracted from the real issues in the World today. As if someone is trying to get us to look elsewhere as they work their manipulations and deceptions and bend the world to their own ends.
Post a Comment new!
