2017 Walk Award
By Robert Stern

the Trojan horse wants to retire
tired even of his appearances in comics
he wants to gallop down to the seashore
and listen to the waves caress the sands
while dreaming that an ancient ship
will sail by and pick him up
and take him back at the very least
to the memory of his home far away

. . . . .
Robert Stern has been writing poems and aphorisms for over 50 years. He has been published in the Antigonish Review, Blue Unicorn, Konglomerati Press, Massachusetts Review, Poets Gallery, and others. The poem about the Trojan horse was written only a few months ago. To write inspired poetry is to be touched by the marvelous.
