Good evening and welcome to another Friday Night Poetry Corner. This week and I am featuring a short work of poetry. I think you guys know I have a “thing” for short poems that are powerful and direct. It’s a bias but this work is powerful. It is untitled and it is written by Derek Arthur. Please when you get a chance visit this poet’s page and read more of his work!

Also please stay safe out there. We are still in the storm but it will have an opening of calmness eventually.

Tangent Prose

Angel, where are you?

My dreams show your face, but life

Is painfully cold.

E.P. Robles | Poetry

the stairs became more
tiny as i took each step
until i had to step upon
nonsense
— i thought of those
muggy nights in a trailer
by the Mississippi River:
so perched inside my fear-
just a boy in the early
70s and my skin made it
hurt. so beautiful
is the world — but we pay
with emotional destruction.
