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?

Run, Runner

best!
foot
plot!
course
on!
track
straight ahead is the way back
home!
sweet
not!
much
there!
but
ever so humble, it's all we got
soul's dark night gone darkest again
and the clouds are comin down and the rain is bent, but
it's gonna get warm and sunny again, and then -
and then we're gonna run!
run,
runner!
runner,
run, runner, run! runner,
when you gotta go, you gotta run!
run,
runner!
runner!
run, runner! run, runner -
straight ahead is the way home
you know
it's
not
far
one
foot
a head on your shoulders it shouldn't be hard
just
clear
no
mind
no
self
only up ahead burning into behind, well
how many pieces has this world had
if they all fit together the picture is bad
but it's gonna get warm and sunny again, and then -
and then we're gonna run!
run,
runner!
runner,
run, runner, run! runner,
when you gotta go, you gotta run!
run,
runner!
runner!
run, runner! run, runner -
straight ahead is the way home,
you know
