concrete / ray heinrich

< concrete >

a condominium on the 23rd floor

one with a balcony

is NOT the place

for a poet

or even someone who pretends to be

a poet

you see

there is a sliding glass door to the balcony

and you open it and walk six feet

to the railing which is three feet high

and look down

23 floors

  1. Pretty good poem, even if I did write it.
    Let me compliment you on your selection.
    Feel free to post more should the fit strike you.

  2. Thank you, Ray. I appreciate that and will certainly take you up on it.
