A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


the old time slot

 

 

a look at Neville Brand's scar

it was untouchable

my heart has a similar scar

it is also untouchable

 

but I don't rate Walter Winchell's

narration,

just a few poems

that will never do well

in the Nielson ratings.

thank you, Fabian...

Some things are just untouchable and also inimitable!
Scars on the face or on the heart.
Ratings are here today and gone tomorrow.
The scars and the words endure.
This poem felt so special to me.

Its my pleasure always, dear Jacob.
Oh Capone, with a flair in it thrown and
W. Winchell's on the fake news throne.
