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?

Between us two, we could commit
the world's mightiest mortal sin, I guess. You
could be the best bad influence that I have ever met -
- and yet, I do suspect that better things than anything bad
or worse we'd fling ourselves at heedlessly, reveal themselves
to our regret, as we are forced to mumble curse, and grudgingly admit
that it's self-evident, our blessings are a better bet.
We roll with it.
