facial feature poem #1

facial feature poem #1

now that these last few years I’ve
become a news junkie I’ve seen
the faces on TV not just read their
words or heard their NPR voices no
this isn’t a political poem it’s about
the leader of the judicial committee
Jerry Nadler’s left eyebrow – maybe
you’ve noticed how it has a life of
its own it doesn’t move in concert  
with its buddy my dad had such an
eyebrow so pronounced so individual
that when he visited a writing class
of mine at UIS one of the students
wrote “An Ode to Ron Dougan’s  
Left Eyebrow.” I cherished that brow
now I am cherishing Jerry Nadler’s!
