Odds and Ends


Where do you go when you need small compassion,
A brief intermission,
A hug and a nod?
Where do you go to take good criticism,
A quick intervention,
A well needed prod?
Do you go to your friends or your brothers and sisters,
Your co-workers, enemies, Satan, or God?
Do you drive to Des Moines, take a train to Toronto,
Arrive in Dubai, or fly straight to Cape Cod?
Good poems provoke questions,
Better poems provoke answers,
But I never promised anything
Other than odd.
My friend,
Thatโ€™s the end.
