    The Poet of Utah Park

    The Poet of Utah Park my second poetry collection has been published as an ebook at Amazon:




    US Link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EKOTNA0
    UK Link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00EKOTNA0


    It contains 50 + 1 to grow on poems covering a wide variety of topic and themes from very personal
    to humor, science and space. Of particular note is "The Wolf Pack of Utah Park."


    Here are two short poems from the book:


    Apple

    January brings a
    solitary apple
    that clings in iridescence
    to a lonely upper branch.

    A desiccated beauty
    And why only one?
    Squirrels have not touched it
    birds have left it be

    Poison, profound or pious
    I may never know
    Iím reconciled to beauty alone
    for only crows know truth



    Reaching for Orion


    Orion has always been my guiding light
    I yearn to reach, to touch to follow

    Yet when I do the stars shift and change
    as I leave the Earth, Polaris
    is no longer the North Star

    and the closer I get to Orion
    the further away I become

    As you may know (or not) we've had tremendous flooding here in Colorado. Utah Park in fact flooded, many houses were damaged along the drainage canal and in the area. Peoria Street which runs beside the park is still closed and under repair though the park itself is pretty much back to normal water levels in pond, etc.

    Here is a selection from the book:



    The Wolf Pack of Utah Park


    You hear her wicked witch voice
    from somewhere across the park

    You canít see them at all but you know they are near
    The Wolf Pack of Utah Park

    Your heart skips a beat, anxiety rises
    you wish to turn around

    The wild Pomeranians, the evil Chihuahuas
    the vicious Terrier -- leader of the pack

    A poor liíl hunched over man in her evil thrall
    does his best to manage three of the wicked brood

    but they move like chaos across the walk
    they are everywhere at once

    As you try to pass she flashes her evil and deadly smile
    the Pomeranian nips your ankles, the poodle pisses on your feet

    You hear her cackles fade, as you hurry to distance yourself
    once again, for one more day, from the Wolf Pack of Utah Park
