poetic“Ah but I was so much older then;

I’m younger than that now.” -Bob Dylan



By Fred Rosenberg, guest poet


A survey appearing on e-mail

desired the date of my birth;

with honesty not characteristic,

I wrote out the answer with mirth.


To continue the survey I waited,

but a blockage appeared on the screen;

“Your answer conflicts with our records,”

so I’ll change when I came on the scene.


Mary Louise Cox, Poet Laureate of the town and village of Mamaroneck
