this then the day by Larry Jones

new york cliché
apple a day
doctor away
chemo okay
whatever say
poem a day

poem at play
fuck yesterday
weekend aweigh
seaside sashay
new jersey bay
low holiday

roll in the spray
funny foray
private display
oh anyway
come then what may
one more great lay

chemo okay
no great dismay
while no hooray
nothing so fey
this then the stay
alive today

  1. Genna, thank you so much for this publication.  I had actually written this poem when on interferon through a bout of hepatitis c many years ago, and  before the “big c” sneaked up on me!
