The Sad Wife
A man stares at the face of his wife in a
A man knows her somehow.
A man stares at the face of his watch
imagining gears, sprockets, a mainspring--
Somehow even ticking.
There are no mainsprings
behind the face of his wife
nor pictures ticking.

The Summer Gazebo Readings are held each Monday evening at 7pm in June, July & August. Each evening 4-5 authors and poets share their work from our Gazebo on Schoolhouse Green in Oceanside, NY. SGR is produced by the Kiwanis Club of Oceanside. Funds raised through sponsorships help send underprivileged kids to Kamp Kiwanis each summer. This summer marks our 7th season!
