Something I found....

Some things catch one's eye...
like glass.
strewn across a darkened alley;
That later you find
Crushed into your boot heel.
The trick is in not thinking them diamonds,
That you then find crushed in your knees.

You know I got to tell you that I think you have the poet's curse, Joe.
Your writing's good--great images and ideas. I like it.

Thank you David Porter... Not any of these are anything like finished, but I do think there are some good ideas, sounds, and images in there... I'm meeting with some friends who are going to help critique, embelish, and fine tune a few of these... I'm really looking forward to it!!!!
