Blasé by Ernest Dempsey

The altered taste of a feverish palate

Or moving warmth in an icy wind

Prove no less weird than a baseball player

Who looks for style and new turns

But glad no more with a mere win

Perhaps all need is the need to shift

Necessities so truly rare

Some titles must be kept unchanged

The rest being no one’s care

Blasé is from Ernest Dempsey’s poetry book Two Candles ( published by My Lucky Guitar Press (Australia).


One response to “Blasé by Ernest Dempsey

  1. Ernest, It’s so good to hear your voice reading your own work from your wonderful book “Two Candles.” Your voice is strong and tender at the same time.
