Confession | A Poem by G.S. Katz

Confessed to my beautiful wife
of 24 years
That I am a poet

She had no idea
Was blown away
Told her how it came to be
And read her a few examples of my madness

It felt good to tell her
I was living a lie
Now she knows the real truth
From her 61 year old dog

I know, I know, 61?
It’s true
Young at heart, still got my mojo
But racing fast against the skyway
