Choruses 1 By Joe Roarty

Rodger Lowenthal* – The Fox Chase Review

Poems of humorous puzzle and dare

     slip daggers into hypocrisy

rushing headlong but

but focused landslides

remnants stitched to challenge

word play   sword play

play   play around and around

he play we play

seemingly reckless but under tight control

proclamations to be posted

in the town square

poetry of love and annoyance

a broken metronome

time fractured   disappointment

marches in

heavy w/gravid questions

energy   energy   energy

energy   read   enjoy

a remarkable voice
