The Greatest Country in the World

There is little doubt that The United States of America is suffering from a major neurosis on a colossal scale.

Weaver of Words

As each drama unfolds
in spellbinding raptures,
words capture their audience.

I’m paying close attention
to the re-stitching of my canvas,
carefully selecting my words
as poets do.
