I spent today insulting him.
He had to argue.
I banged on the wall with my bell.
I entertained the thought.
He ran into the road.
I carried the smell of whiskey.
He wondered aloud if the law had been broken.
I distrusted the government, only briefly.
He sympathized with the bug on my windshield.
I sliced his thigh, got it over with.
He misses driving calmly together.
I developed a new tick.
He wiped his hands on my pants.
I was defeated by time.
You can call me a project-oriented poet. A big beam of obsession & confusion & delight shines down & I'm hooked for a bit. My two full-length collections of poems are WHAT IS WHO (my self-published MFA thesis at the Michener Center For Writers, 2018) & More Wreck More Wreck (published by Coconut Books in 2014). My most recently-released poem-project is FUTURE BARN, available for FREE both in PDF & audio form.
I'll post new poems every Friday from my forthcoming collection, I ONCE WAS SOMEONE ELSE & OFTEN STILL AM. I'd be honored if you gave it a read, a possible share. Thanks!
