Poem and Painting from Elemental Long Beach


an old friend used to say
questions are more important
than their answers

I write questions because
they are all
I have

not even yesterday's bread
on the kitchen counter
or a half cup of cold coffee
can sustain me

the moonlight spills
on the page
but offers no illumination

An Exhibit of Tom Scherschel Paintings was featured at the Hellada Art Gallery in Long Beach California.  The show opened with a signing of the chapbook Elemental Long Beach featuring the collaboration of Tom and Laurie Zupan.
