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?

"Bus 9"

This bus
is late. By the posted sign,
I was here on time
and others were there

waiting before me.
And I asked one, he
said it hadn't

Baby, I don't care!

I have got my fare
and itinerary
- and my day mapped out
for the rest of my life.
The day is so early,
and going to be nice.

And you're waiting for me.

So the bus is delayed. So
what? I can wait some
for Paradise.
