Unknown Poet from Rue Montpelier, poet, Michael Lee Johnson, Itasca, IL. Is everything real or just a mirage, we live our young often radical romantic lives that way in a loving dream of smoke sometimes ash and cinder? Nancy was a rather promiscuous young lady Leonard Cohen and others met and engaged with in Montreal. She committed suicide around 1961. Thus the Cohen song "Seems so long ago, Nancy - recorded 1969." As in all good poetry it leaves you with a sense of mystery.

Manic IsThe Dark Night, (V1), Poem, Michael Lee Johnson, Itasca, IL "Manic is the Dark Night" is one of my favorite poems since it is real though it sound magical and mysterious, and very creepy. It is a real life experience with a "Shrink" from some "foreign country" doing his internship practicing on me. As someone who has suffered on occasion from depression-my mass of 6'4" and his mass of 6'4" must have created a control environment. He sensed my intelligence was determined to conquer me and put me in my place for 20 minutes while he issued my medication for the next 3 months. Shrinks do little but ask if you are going to kill yourself or others, have you slept well, or you on drugs, or drink too much? Basically, the visits are boring as hell and one goes with the flow knowing there is no therapy here. This shrink actually grabs the phone and said, "Want me to call the police." I thought what an idiot but I gave into the immediate need to get my meds. Later when this poem was published and he "cooled" down I actually read this poem published in a book to him, live. We became closer after that time. Who is the nut?

My Brains, by Michael Lee Johnson, poet, Itasca, Illinois is a rumination of the past, present, future. It ranges itself from recollections of the past coughed up to the now; then drifts back to the "then" once more to pull the memories up front.

40 Below, Plus Wind-chill-Edmonton, Alberta (V2). I remember that frozen life in exile, Vietnam War for 10 years. I watched others and myself struggle up Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta in that heart of winters. Sometimes extreme cold and extreme love freeze together. I will never forget the worst 6 weeks in Edmonton, Alberta when it was 33 degrees or more for 6 weeks with worst wind-chill-86 degrees below. Love freezes, old timers freeze, then on route to Fuller's Restaurant on Jasper Ave. I could tell you stories of so cold on Jasper Avenue at midnight with light snow, stoplights clicking and I hear each click stop, yellow, green, to me go.

Had a nightmare day and night-on warfarin for 10-12 years for 3 blood clots-still on warfarin and felt a little pain in my left calf-then noticed the right leg was 20-30 larger than the left, that the right leg was warm, the left normal-out of caution and thank God on Medicare with supplement-had ultrasound and blood clot in left leg just like the 3 others 10 years ago but WHILE ON WARFARIN! Options, go to hospital for 5 days to take injections, or rush to pharmacy for self-shots to the belly button for 5 days 2 a day and checking in with doctor daily...cost $650 for 10 shots 2 a day for 5 days or out of business with my clients with orders pending. THISS HAS BEEN A ROUGH DAY. I also thought wait until tomorrow and if I die tonight I'm ok with that.

If I Were Young Again, Michael Lee Johnson, Singer, Bill Bero. This poem was written years ago by Michael Lee Johnson, the Itasca, IL. poet. Here this poem has been re-created my song writer, composer, singer Bill Bero, Northern Indiana (my home state). “If I Were Young Again” is a symbolic poem and real experience of Michael Lee Johnson while self-exiled in Alberta, Canada for 10 years during the Vietnam War era. I've always loved the imagery of this poem as a reflection of lonesomeness, a sense of rootless bearings which reflected a self-centered nature or simply a forgotten one.
