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
