"Portrait of a Lady" by Angelica Kauffman‘Vexed By A Verb!’ by E. V. Wyler The Society February 3, 2017 Humor, Poetry 2 Comments “Vexed by a verb!” I often vent, undeniably discontent. Let my quirky quote be the key to promoting a patent plea for the status I’d reinvent: Pairing “I am” with “years” has meant an identity I resent; being defined by age makes me vexed by a verb! The remedy I’d implement, ownership of the time one’s spent, prefers “to have” over “to be”; hence, “having” years will guarantee my halting to holler hell-bent “Vexed by a verb!” E. V. “Beth” Wyler grew up in Elmont, NY. At 43, she obtained her associate’s degree from Bergen Community College. She and her husband, Richard, share their empty Fair Lawn, NJ nest with 3 cats and a beta fish. Her oldest daughter is a biomedical engineer and her other two children are SUNY undergraduate students. E. V. Wyler’s poetry has been published in: The Storyteller, Feelings of the Heart, WestWard Quarterly, The Pink Chameleon, Nuthouse Magazine, The Rotary Dial, and on the website Poetry Soup. In addition, 3 accepted poems are pending publication in Vox Poetica. Related Post Essay: ‘Poetry and the Muses Part 2’ by James Sa...
