Salem
#tonyv from 4/3-4/5 2020

All the rabble had its eyes on me
when all I did was smoke a cigarette
in Salem, Massachusetts. At her hanging,
in the public square, I had a buzz;
'twas from the rum. She was a daffodil
last night. I loved that hussy all night long.

thegateless.org Come on over and check out my poetry substack y'all;-) Or if your bored, head to the Zazzle store: https://www.zazzle.com/store/gateless. If you buy anything I lose a bet, so consider that before you violate the digital rules.

Thank you both. I know these poems I'm posting as part of this poem/day thing are bit half-assed, but that's all I can manage at this rate. Gonna try to keep up.

Tony, The daily thing pushes you and the poems I write are sometimes just getting something on the page.  But there is value in each piece, maybe the seeds of a poem that will take more time to be polished and/or expanded or one to just be abandoned.  In sales for me the rule of thumb is 3 nos to 1 yes.  So far you have produced only yeses.  But it is a good discipline.   I'd be proud to say I wrote any one of your offerings.  I wouldn't consider this one half assed at all.   It's really good.
