Poem of the Day

My poem “Poem in which Words Have Been Left Out” is the Poem-of-the-Day today at Poets.org, the website of the Academy of American Poets!

It’s based on the “Miranda Rights,” the set of rote statements officers of the law must recite when taking someone into custody.  This practice came out of a U.S. Supreme Court case that originated in Arizona.

You have the right to remain
anything you can and will be.

  1. I love your poem, “Poem in which Words Have Been Left Out.” I read it several times and then forwarded it to my word-playing, word-loving friends.
