The Mirror

The Mirror

In the mirror
My right is my left
And my left is my right

In the mirror
I see an opposing reality
That is not true to life

I cannot see
The way other people see me
In the mirror

Only with a camera
Do I see myself
As others do

So the mirror
Must show anti-reality

You and I

This poem is from the book "The Old Man In the Moon" by Paul Spradley.

You and I

The morning sun rises
Shining through the cold
Shimmering on the ocean waves
In dazzling patterns of silver lace
Sandpipers challenge each receding wave
Then flee from the foamy dregs
Of another thunderous assault
Seagulls huddle together
In secret conference
Wet sandy barefoot run
We'll make them fly
Now they hover lazily in the sky
Singing with scorn
At you and I

The Grand Delusion

This poem is from the book "The Grand Delusion" by Paul Spradley

The Grand Delusion

Sit right down and be amused
We can have a good time here
With each other
But I refuse
To be accused
Of being your seducer
The prophet has the blues again tonight
The joker has been reduced to an average man
And the magician in top hat and cape
Has chosen to have you - for his next trick
What he creates is all an illusion
Though it will seem real
The best way to enjoy yourself
Is-
Forget this fact
After all, you should be used to his act by now
All you have to do is keep in mind
That this is what love is-
So settle back and relax
And enjoy his magic act
In the blackness of the room
In the comfort of the sack
You won't ever want to come back

Irresistible

This poem is from the book "Irresistible" by Paul Spradley

Irresistible

You're irresistible, baby
You always get your way
You're irresistible, baby
You always win the day

Sin

This poem is from the book "By the Light of Day" by Paul Spradley

Sin

If you say it is a sin
Then I will never do it again
But I hope I win
The lottery again
