Poems and Poetry

Next Month | A Poem by Guy Farmer

No stranger to failure,
Ryan optimistically
Starts a new project.

This will be the one,
He says to himself as
He dreams of success.

In the other room
His wife opens yet
Another envelope.

This month it’s the
Electricity that
May be shut off.

Next month it
Could very well
Be a divorce.
