I write to find similarities between my own experience and the experiences of others. Hopefully my writing is pleasant to read. I love to put interesting words together. Striving for authenticity, my goal is to present poems that are real and relatable, not indecipherable. Read, comment, critique, enjoy. My old profile can be found at the link below. Subscribe to my Youtube channel where I do poetry, politics, and life.


Unexpectedly Good I want to be flat like a map Not round Like a–pumpkin See I should have said Globe That’s what would have fit and that’s what you were expecting And the thing that makes sense Should be the thing we choose Right? That’s the proper thing to do But I never like the proper-right Although it’s good and fitting My ten little poets won’t do it that way They are rebellious little wrigglers bait on the end of a line intended for only the biggest fish the best words So that’s why I said pumpkin and not globe because the proper-right is not always the most excellent choice and it is far from the tastiest worm

Love your poetry, the way it sparkles along in its deceptive simplicity! Also because it poses such a challenge and contrast to mine. We learn....

'I write to find similarities between my own experience and the experiences of others...' Amen to that.
