Blank Look #599 – a poem by Carl Mayfield


Blank Look #599

a warbling vireo in the olive tree
sings the notes he’s been given

not caring what we think of the song
or where he’ll be tomorrow


Carl Mayfield knows better, but continues to write. Recent work in Glimpse, The Pangolin Review, Plum Tree Tavern.


  1. Mark Tulin says:

    Such a free and beautiful spirit.


  2. Carl knows how so much is made important in so few words.
