Worrisome Winnowing

It was a struggle

to pick five from the fifty

or so poems he’d read.

At times, he said, it felt like

abandoning friends,

and he courageously offered

to go back and save some more.


( I am in the initial stages of going through my poems and selecting some to include in a self-published book. The poem  above recounts an email I got from a friend who had agreed to read 50 and pick his 5 favorites. If you have some favorites, I’d love to hear from you too. )
