rejected: looking for daylight

An excellent piece…

writing in airplanes

Why some poems are rejected for publication over and over is a mystery to me. This poem has never been published except on this blog. It is one of my favorites and, I think, one of my better poems. See what you think.

Looking for daylight

Nonchalantly in a riot
you hold my hand
as we slip among
the passed out revelers
looking for daylight
through the gas cloud
drifting aimlessly
for a place to rest
till things settle
and we are lost
in the crowd
a tangle of limbs
invisible
inside the chaos
safe
in each others’ arms
