Poem: At the Middlebury Dog Park

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Gary Margolis



What joy unleashed, seeing

you here again, late

in the afternoon, after work.

 

So we can say hello,

front to end. Let out

of our cooped-up houses

 

and apartments. Owned

and for a moment freed.

To feel like ourselves.

 

Breeding and not bred.

Writing our names in pee.

Covering each other’s crap

 

with our own. To say

remember who we are.

Friends-in-the world

Poem: Submitting poems to the local paper

Posted on December 13, 2016 | Blog Category:
By Gary Margolis



So Bev Megyesi can stop me at the counter
to say, Gary, I didn’t know you were a hunter,
having read my poem in the local paper.

The one the editor chose, because it coincides 
with the last weeks in November, deer who have
to be remembered.

I tell Bev it's my poem's speaking voice, the one inside 
my head I write on paper. That’s news to me, she says.
It sounds so much like you I thought you were

Poem: There is here

Posted on November 18, 2016 | Blog Category:
By Gary Margolis



Maybe I shouldn’t tell you I wear 
a star under my shirt. 
Having heard two swastikas

were seen magic-marked 
on our Havaruh’s door. 
Here, in a country town, more

of a house than a city’s 
synagogue. Maybe I shouldn’t 
say how much or how little

I pray. How disturbing it is
to remember the numbers I saw
inked on a man’s wrist,

when I was a boy. 
What, a few weeks ago,
I felt in Birkenau, fields

Across the aisle

Posted on November 14, 2016 |
By Gary Margolis



My aisle’s a walk across the road I have

to walk. My neighbor’s stripping his bumper-

peeling decal off. We’ve had little to say

 

to each other these past twelve months.

Guessing where each other stands,

by the flags we wave. By now we’ve had

 

enough of this, our barely talking.

We have to get back to the work of

Poem: Winning in Their City

Posted on November 4, 2016 | Blog Category:
By Gary Margolis



Winning in Their City

after Elizabeth Bishop’s “One Art”

 

Tonight there’s no art

to losing in extra innings.

We’re not used to winning.

Not having to console ourselves,

heart-heavy. In the park,

 

in their city, we’re all about

coming back from losing.

Celebrating the art of one-

run winning. Raising the flag

at the start of Spring’s next season.
