"I Don't Buy It"

I don’t buy it, says

the scientist.

Replies the frail

and faithful heart,

it’s not for sale.

 

Poetry, January 2013

Wendy Videlock lives in Western Colorado. Her new book, 'The Dark Gnu,' an illustrated book of poems, is out now.

"Proverbial"

It’s always darkest before the leopard’s kiss.

Where there’s smoke there is emphasis.

A bird in the hand is bound for the stove.

The pen is no mightier than the soul.

Never underestimate the nib of corruption.

Better late than suffer the long introduction.
