I am so excited another poem is up and running on Outlaw Poetry Network! Thank you all for always swinging by and reading!


Life ain’t been no crystal stair by Sofia Kioroglouimage

Enjoy what is in your glass
whether half full or half empty
just let it whirl around and
savor its body and color

Don’t just swig it but sip it slowly
allow its flavor to linger on your palate
Take what life throws at you
and if it is a lemon make some iced tea

If life ain’t been no crystal stair
embrace the tacks and splinters
today’s slings and arrows are
tomorrow’s fish-and-chip paper
