Poem – Persona non Grata (By JD DeHart)

Persona non Grata


To the not good enough

comments, I say, psshhhhhh.

That was last week, a hundred

years ago.  Easily.

I’m flushing, rinsing down

the last backwash of badly-

formed words.

This week is triumph, so don’t

mind that shadow you noticed

last week.  He has bloomed like

a perrenial and will be back
