Biography

Just a grizzled old geezer trying to make sense of what has gone, what will come, and what is. I was an aspiring poet many yarns ago, but found the SASE's too costly, the rejection slips too colorful, and the arbiters of style too bent on maintaining their definition of what does and does not constitute poetry. I am very pleased to find that the community of poets has survived and wish to contribute my voice to yours in this wonderful cacophony of being. Thank you. Devon

Fog at a Bad Interchange

Life and caprice caught me in fog at a bad interchange. Caught me all sideswipe and grind-paint; ditched me median; split with a merge-wink. Wet grass, broken axle, crunch-metal locked, dangling mirror sees nothing but fog, smear-light and loose change.

Devon, welcome to WOL. Interesting bio picture. Good thing the face seems full of humour! Can't figure out 'old geezer' bit though.

I'll try to find some time to check out your work. Great piece upfront.

Hey Devon! I've been browsing your work and really enjoy what I've read so far. "She Calls It Sorrow" is a great story and reminds me of some of the people I've crossed paths with in life. It would sound great spoken slam-style with jazz in the background. Looking forward to reading more from you. Take care --- J. Zane
