  • Emily, Rescue Me from Mediocrity
    by Ruth Sabath Rosenthal

    hunkered down on Me
    -- an Albatross, that by Night
    in full fright, slips ten Talons
    through my sleepless Brain and digs
    up Bits and Pieces of Poems
    ostensibly laid to rest.
    From my writing Hand by Day

    -- in full Sight -- the Interloper
    presses me to pen again and again,
    those scrapped Fragments, and renders
    Verse I put that Trash into
    not the least bit better for It.
    Fighting Tooth & Nail not to write
    worse and worse, I sweat wanting
    Intervention -- your Invention.

    Ruth Sabath Rosenthal is a New York poet whose poems have been published in numerous literary journals and poetry anthologies throughout the U.S. and abroad.
