Today's poem is by Daisy Fried
Better Read, A Valentine
Scare, tides & herring. Shift. Sky
at night. Eye flight, the plane half empty.
Light district, letter days, in tooth
and claw. Hot Chili Peppers, blooded,
lobster, roses, River Valley,
remember? Flag flying here
(though cowards flinch
and traitors sneer). Rover.
Rover, come over.
