but aren't they all random?



A Pocketful of Poesy was a Poem-a-Day(-on-Average) Blog* up until the great derail of 2013. The impossibly-high standard of quality proved impractical to keep up, without a book deal. But don't take my word for it: click RANDOM and judge for yourself! And feel free to offer your critique.
*based on poem rate for calendar years 2009-2012. Also, kidding about the book deal.

"Hippocrates, first"

I mean no harm.
I will do no harm,
if I can, I will: be earth
in sum: harmless,
mostly,

I will protect you, even from myself if I have to,

and if I die in the attempt, still
better that

please
do not take harm
from me.

I am truly neither sufficient, nor worthy
