  1. "I Have A Handle On the Situation" a Poem by David Roby

    [FONT=verdana, geneva, ms sans serif, arial]I have a handle on the situation.

    I have a handle on my space and contents.

    My vacant hollow.

    Or the items of which I house a dozen odds and ends.

    I always know what I possess or what may be un-there or missing.

    To study my physiognomy, one might think not much or lacking.

    But closer on inspection, I am near divine and worthy of great travels.

    A true companion of love and comfort, recognition, the familiar.

    I have been held in such a clutch and such a love storm

    by my mistress and her values.

    She takes me abroad a thousand footsteps, always holding on and never once ignoring.

    Mostly I am there to steady, to balance her or witness.

    She sometimes shuffles through my soul in search of needy things,

    like painted sticks and looking glasses of which I keep most dear.

    She searches inward and there she looks inside my sacred space.

    Full of painted stick and looking glasses,

    I am my lady's handbag.
