I am now posting my poems also on a new Facebook page. I invite y'all to join us here:


The stiff,
plastic coated metal bends
but does not intertwine
as readily as the clear,
thin, fishing line.
Blunt fingers 
can pry apart 
the rolling curves 
of cables, 
but are innocuous 
to the minuscule, 
tightly wrapped threads. 
The random interactions 
and coincidences 
of curving time
has brought the linear flow 
to this fuzzy spot, 
without direction, 
into fixed, solid orbits. 
Even the nimble surrender, 
to cut 
the growths loose 
rather than free them.

-Robert L. Jackson III
