Hi, you must be a robust person.
Self-worth is something,
Grasshoppers elsewhere in the tall grass.
I like myself. I
Continue being just as nimble
& punctual as I
Can be, one who never dares leave
My home without hands
& feet. Last night I dreamt about The
Jerry Springer Show.
Specifically two memories.
In one, a dwarf leaves
Her husband for a guy named Hambone.
In the other, Gwar,
That messy metal band finds itself
Confronted by parents
Whose kids keep ruining the laundry
Insisting on fake blood
For customizing their t-shirts.
This morn, I remembered
Jerry Springer was once mayor of
Recorded a country album, earned
A law degree. Some
Things always change, are possible.
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!
