Pathos in the Blue SkyTo Derick Varn's previous piece     A SmileTo Derick Varn's next piece


Twisted man, frayed hair,
Past reflects in his matted tresses.
Down deep and dark with his eyes
His heart pours out in pipe tobacco
feeble, simple-minded, not clear to the word
Down deep and dark within his soul
A smile runs amuck on his face and
Tells stories seldom told.
Twisted, old, gray man down within my soul.
