Zumwalt Poems Online

no purchase necessary

no purchase necessary

select and seize

no contract
no lease
no terms
no conditions

the wild sunbreezed days
spawning and spawned
extra innings without fouls or errors
endlessly imaged in a corridor of mirrors

cloud nine working overtime
free and without obligation
but paradise has a hidden cost
when it is ultimately misplaced

no clue,
no expectation,
no indefinite hunch
no single crumb to munch
just the indigestion
of a bait and switch free lunch
which in retrospect,
not an attractive offering,
even though free,
and initially,
back-seat, magic-carpet-ride breezily easy.

— zumwalt (2011)

  1. It is wonderful to see you back! That is an interesting place of the meaningless phrases we through around mostly without thought. 🙂


  2. I really like your style…thanks for sharing!
