UNDERGROUND VOICES: POETRY
They walk among the shadows
Lurking, disillusioned with their surroundings.
Craving death and convincing themselves that killing those who consider
their existence irrelevant is a noble act.
So they creep…in and out of gun shops…finding an excuse…
Hatred of ideals.
Wanting to hurt
They come in many names, in many guises
Son of Sam
Now a new identity…playing an old game of pomp and kill.
Dreams are shattered.
Parents overwrought with sadness.
Certainly not the dead.
Their tomorrows are gone.
In one simple act of motor skill,
Dan Provost is 44 years old and reads a lot of poetry. Some of his favorites include:
Bukowski, Lyn Lyfshin, RC Edrington, JJ Campbell, and Arthur Rimbald. He has been
published in numerous poetry e-zines and small print magazines.
