“Was ist liebe?” This question generates more poets than answers. Maybe poetry is AN answer. #hamburg #grafitti #liebe #love #poetry

Santa Claus In Training

I am becoming that old man most people like—beardly and giggling.

I am pleased with this direction, even though I likely have no choice.

I seek it. Something in my genetics, maybe. And in the genes of all the men like me.

We’re a jolly kin meant for joyhood.

Job Description: Remind them that real laughter is holy.

What do you want for your holiday/Monday/yesterday? Tell me loud or with a stare. We may not speak it, but we read body language better than most.

Who needs a chimney when you’ve got a round-trip bus ticket?

My sleigh rides the rails. Sometimes it’s pulled by a Greyhound.

Eat your cookies, we’re all diabetic now, I’m sweet enough for the both of us.

None of us are saints. None of us are truly married.

But we’re all born to be this. Joymaking is a universal balance. It’s whispered to us the first time we see the same skill in someone else.

Be merry, it says.

Be merry, indeed.

I was born for this.

This is my hosting clipboard. I host with it. Now it has a laminated copy of Tony Brown’s poem “Mission Statement” on it for invocations and general public gathering act-ups. A “Read-This-In-Case-Of-Emergencies” type of poem. #poetry badassery

Shhh. It’s all right.
Sleep will come,
when you’re not looking.
Morning will come, and breakfast,
and things that should be easy
will be easy once more.
It’s the Walk of Life.
You’ve walked it before
and you will walk it again.
Shhh now beloved.

victorinfante:

More on Jack McCarthy, this time for Telegram.com. I wanted to focus in on what he meant to this community.

As usual, Victor—thank you, thank you, thank you.
