‘In the Moment’ Poetry


In the Moment Poetry is simply just that:  a poem written at a particular moment that is inspired by the present, with little to no post-editing applied.

This poem was written on March 16th:


Part I

Sitting in a cafe—

listening to M83’s ‘Do It’

defines the moment that I sip a cup

and decide whether to read Catcher in the Rye

or current events on the ‘net.


Part II

Kids line up, dividing the room—

I feel like a writer

sitting with my book and computer.

In fact

I place a book on the table

but never read it.

Living the life.
