Poetry by Ken Tomaro : Good to Know from FOTM Press Presents the Poets of 2020

Good to know

there was an old black and white photo of him
he was sitting in a boat
a small boat, the kind with oars
and he had a great smile upon his face
like the fishing pole in his hand
was the greatest joy in the world
there was, I will admit part of me
who wishes I could have been there
but I have no patience for sitting in the boiling sun
perfectly still for hours
waiting for something to tug on the line
I have no patience for that
And who would have the patience for me
even if they were on top of the world
at the moment
