Sam Silva, A Different Kind of Nature

Sam Silva

In plain idiot despair
television breeds its own shallow comedy
…someone pained
by depression and arthritis
lies on an air cooled cot trying to undo
the direction
where the dopey planet goes

…while the TV is still on
and such days begin to darken
until summer turns to snows.

Bio: Sam Silva is the author of numerous ebooks and chapbooks and a few full-length collections of poetry. He is widely published in print and online journals and has been nominated several times for Pushcart Prizes and other awards.

  1. Bravo, Sam. As I said on Facebook, yours is a sly, knowing poem. So much packed into so few lines. Attitude, too! Looking forward to more of your poems.
