Robert K. Johnson
Bio Note: My poems are spins on our everyday world, which has always gripped me much more than science-fiction worlds. A now retired English Professor, I taught for many years at Suffolk University in Boston. I also for several years was Poetry Editor for IBBETSON STREET magazine. I have had several collections of poems published.
Even This Late in My Life
Stepping onto my backyard's patio, I'm greeted by a suprise of dawnlight— whose stillness keeps the coming day at bay, and only after its hush presents me with a golden promise for today, does it let an insect, riding the air, start time ticking again.
