A Pocketful of Poesy was and is again a Poem-a-Day(-on-Average) Blog! For 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and now for 2017 and going forward, you may expect to see 365 poems every year, 366 for leap years. Try the RANDOM button to sample the sometimes surprising breadth of quality (and in several Novembers, breathtaking quantity as well), or click the "ANY GOOD" label* for those poems labeled with it. On any poem, old or new, feel free to offer your remarkable insight or critical acumen.

*I haven't yet revisited many pockets and stretches of time to appraise and label the "any goods," so some are missing. Please feel free to point out omissions, or - especially - erroneous inclusions, in comments.

but aren't they all random?

drunk is a poor excuse

drunk is a poor excuse
to be the person you already are
and will always be,
when you're drunk,
and shake the strong inhibition you make
for the sake of the ones who you want
to keep close

and not see the worst.
until it's too late
or too much, when the person
you already are means
to have a say, come out
after all this time and play,
or maybe it's just

another day. But
either way,
it's a poor

and inadequate thing
to say.
