Obsolescence~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Treasured Barnwood” by William Havle

comes with age

and a certain amount

of low living

this wobbling gait

this off kilter view

of an all too near

crooked horizon

a center mass

shifted by insolent

fingers of gravity

pulled out of plumb

leaning over like

obsolete barnwood

afraid of its memories

crippled by pangs

of the truth that

they’re over and done

leaving nothing but

useless tomorrows


  1. tomorrow will bring rebirth, so always have hope. nice poem.

  2. thank you for sharing my poem with your readers
