This morning I Discovered A hole In my pocket And as the day Moved on The hole Got bigger And I began To wonder What I had Lost What I had Found What I had Put in my Pocket That was no longer There And what I hadn't Put in my Pocket That should Have been There So I spent The rest of the day Retracing My steps Wondering what Should have been There That had gone Until I alienated the pocket Sewed it up In my mind Pretended It had never been There In the first place And with no Pocket To poke my fingers Through I wondered What it was I should be doing With my hands And the things That had been In my pocket Had I not lost Them Until my fingers Itched And my soul Wobbled And then I Realised That there was No hole In my pocket There was no Pocket To have a hole In And I wondered What it was I was holding Onto So preciously That a hole Would allow It all To leak Out

What could be more philosophical than hop-scotch? Or hip-hop for that matter?

Your poetry is odd and unique the way you have no stanzas; truthful and panoramic. I can see the steps of your thought process, each line is like a step. Very inspirational, a voice of wisdom.

I adore your sample. The hole in the pocket reminds me of The Beatles Yellow Submarine when Ringo finds he has a hole in his pocket.

A belated welcome to WOL from me too. I hope the site proves to be a second home for you, with it's rich library of diverse poetry - and poetic voices. Best wishes, Dave
