Mid-Week’s Ingrate

It’s Wednesday morning and
it’s got that Friday kind of vibe
but without that “Thank god
it’s finally Friday” feeling.

So much seems to be ending;
there’s
so little to be grateful for.

These days, it’s possible to be
out of gas by noon on Tuesday;
to have to muddle through an
entire week of Wednesdays
on nothing but fumes
and the emptiest of promises.

My poem, Ginsberg’s Omelet, is up today at Red Wolf Journal. I’m hopeful that it will also be deemed worthy for inclusion in the Red Wolf Editions’ Fall 2019 anthology, which will have the theme of Borrowed Poetry.

Sincere thanks to editors Irene Toh and Tawnya Smith for including my work, and for all of the other really fine work which is always available Red Wolf Journal.

Read Ginsberg’s Omelet Here

I’ve appeared at RWJ several (seven!) times over the past few years.
You can read those poems Here.

Orgulation

Orgulous is a real word (See Below). I made up ‘Orgulation‘.

Orgulous: ~adjective: haughty, proud, ostentatious, disdainful

Derived from the French “orguill” meaning “pride” and akin to the German “urguol” meaning “outstanding”; found its first use in English in the 16th century.
