A Glimpse Into my Mind

All Rights Reserved ©


If I were a millionaire, people would call me eccentric. Since I am a poor man, I guess I'm simply crazy. If you enjoy poetry, not free-verse, but real poetry, I think you will like my work. I grew up with my mom reading me stories by Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein. Now, at age 49, I can still recite many of those stories from memory. I discovered that people enjoyed my poetry and have spent that last several years trying to emulate the authors that had made such an impression upon me. I am submitting some of what I consider to be my best unpublished poems for your consideration. I truly hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.

An Invitation

I have written this book

If you'd care to look

I hope you will like what you see

If you'll take your time

Understanding my rhymes

Perhaps one day you will know me

I like to be funny

But I'm not always sunny

Sometimes my darkness creeps out

So please turn the page

See my mirth and rage

And read what I'm thinking about

heironymousridiculous: Do I love you more because one of your parents was a narcissist? Or was it always that crumpled, refracted, white trash inheritance besieging my negative attachments until I’d eaten up all my carefully rationed self-esteem? Of course I was insane with hunger. Of course you never meant to hurt me ...
