The poet helps an elderly friend

Sorting his life’s collections

Placing articles into files

According to genre and themes

During an early evening.

At night: The bard sleeps with

A standby alertness

In case of a possible attack on

His friend’s nervous system.

But for now all’s going reasonably

Well. Alas!

At night the poet wears his

Creative hat

He takes his light-blue unlined

Moleskine-journal he bought

At a sale

Adding another poem to the

Cycle: ‘ZJG Pursuit of a Better


He had traveled along the


Set-out for him by the Gods.

By now he has reflected nightly

When it’s dead still on the

Seventh floor of his temporary


A bed set-up by his friend’s wife

For comfort

With some entertainment

With a myriad of TV stations

On a wide screen

Where he mostly selects the

Culturally well set-up channel

Of ‘arte’

Until he senses it’s time to

Tuck-in and bade good-by

To his Muse.
