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?

boots my size

Deftly handled,
sir. There's only
one of those answers
where I would ask you to

"back it up,"

if pressed! But...you know what?

Because you are right, and I do stand
for justice and for the forces of good,
I prefer

to leave it be. Let it lay, put
things in perspective and focus
on the eternal verities,

the broad, smooth panels of concrete
that make up the firm sidewalk upon which I stride,
rather then the cracks between

- which do not after all present any tripping hazard
for any dude in boots

my size.
