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?

"envalidate" is not a word

We are compelled
to do what's best for ourselves,

or at least to try. We have no free will,
in this

- our obligation
takes hold, we're compelled
to envalidate - not innocence,
not bliss,

just existence. Just that.

The fact
that we are: a fact. One self,
not above all others, but clear:

distinct.

It's our duty to be. Therefore,

we think.
