Love Light As Air

written by: Woodbourne 



Small and sudden loves and hopes
are cotton candy light and too sweet.
Imagined futures are his fluffy treats.
Do not let sweat or tears from joy
or grief or shock touch these.
Any such personal wetness dissolves hope.



Michael Ball scrambled from daily and weekly papers through business and technical pubs. Satisfaction and feeling like a writer came through blogging and podcasting, mostly political. Born in OK and raised in rural WV, he became more citified in Manhattan and Boston. Now one of the Hyde Park Poets, he conquers his innate shyness at readings and open mics. He has moderate success placing poems in GOSS183 PoetsArtists, Havik 2019 Anthology, SPLASH!, It's All About Arts, The Reality Break Press, and finalist in the annual Robert P. Collén Competition.
