It Was Inevitable

This weekend, I’ll be in Casper for the WyoPoets annual workshop. Our presenter will be Rick Kempa, a poet and essayist who teaches at Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs. One of his topics will be how music can inspire poetry. I’ve written several poems inspired by songs I liked. Here’s one of them. You can click on the Dropbox link below the poem to hear me read it and the YouTube link below that to hear the song that inspired it.

 

IT WAS INEVITABLE

 

he would leave her.

After an apology for cheating,

promises to think of her always,

sing every song for her

bring her wedding ring,

he kissed her and walked out to the taxi

that would take him to the plane

but would never bring him back.
