I look upon them
envy, stomach a pit.

Biting on bottom, envisaging
just so, before letting go.

To taste
the poison fruit
of my flame

Upon the page
Of which I am not.

Saddened days
rotted, from my thoughts.

If only,
I imagine, too,

He leapt from page
to meet me fraught.

Aware the start
too, the end

But, believed along
with gleeful thought,
oh so worth the shot.

My name is Leanne Howard Kenney. I am a former speechwriter and press secretary for former San Diego City Councilmember current San Diego County Supervisor, Ron Roberts. I am a former Sportswriter. A former political writer. A former public relations copy writer. A former newspaper reporter. A former . . . Apparently, I am a former writer. Well, that is not quite true. I have been writing poetry on my own for quite a while. And, I have been writing the odd article here and there for my own and my friends' pleasure for years. I started posting my poetry approximately a year ago. Where they came from, I know not. I am just glad they came. I hope you enjoy what I have to say.
