Looking for Milton

I look for him everywhere .

In supermarkets , shopping malls ,

along the esplanade where he

hangs out .

Have you seen Milton ? I ask .

But no one has .

Not lately .

Suddenly I need him

this gnome of a man

with the grey goatee .

Milton the Gatekeeper

hoarding the knowledge

like bullion .

Like Diogones with his lamp

I scour the streets

with my headlights

looking for Milton .

  1. I found him, Suzanne. He looks well. He and his wife have spent two weeks in isolation. He reads poetry now. He has been re-reading my book in which my poem of him appears. I said I will try to write a new one after finding him after all this time 🙂
