Tag Archives: observed from the lobby


Received an “anonymous complaint”,

To write in the Lobby I “cain’t”…

Uncomfortable by

A poet’s eye,

The complainer fears judgmental paint!

Poets look around naturally,

Responding to sound they can see…

At three AM

A certain man,

Wants no witness to his activity!

Writing late, I can assume,

It’s safer in the Common Room…

Cannot witness

Exiting of his guests,

Keeping safe his secret as to whom!
