Bad Droopy Tats

Poem By David Whalen

Eagles now sag
Where once they
Proudly soared

Lions have now to whimper
Where once
they loudly roared

Cupids now look stupid
Where once they
Looked so pleased

Once posed perkily
On perky butt
Now droop to wrinkled knees

Lightning bolts that inspired fear
Now look like moles
Or donkeys ears

And once lil' red hearts
Now appear like big ol' warts
On breasts, necks, and rears

They made you happily sigh
When first applied
But that was before you knew

That the giddiness
Would turn into hideousness…
These are the sad sagging fates

Of aging tattoos

A warm Breeze
doves cooing softly
Pollen dusted trees

A Pen Gone Dry

Barren fields…empty places
Mind devoid of idea and rhyme
Sterile imagination…featureless faces
Webs in memories, frozen in time

How The Light's Let In (An Imperfect Poem)

Everything lacks perfection
In the smallest particle there’s a flaw
Imperfection is our protection
Imperfection’s an immutable law

Acknowledge Me

I want to tell my family
I want to tell those who are near
Please don’t look through me
Because…I’m still here

It's not lyrics…but
That lie ‘neath the melody

Who in the heck am I now?
