Simon Perchik is an attorney whose poem "It's When" appears in The Woven Tale Press Vol. VII #6.
"All life is maintenance, someone said—/ the light and lovely always cudgeled/ by what’s gone flat—tires and cushions/ astray—your son, the cat/ to seed or pot—your garden, your body."
"And then I’m outside, standing in a summer / downpour, mounting my bike and riding, / dismayed and joyous at the sudden exuberance / of a storm that will flood all the streets and darken / the afternoon"
"Uncertain acrobats, we tightrope between existing and / living, the patient with a new cane and an incomplete grasp / of gravity, the rest of us sinking under too much of it, / jealous of his morphine, of the wishful thinking he floats in."
