to commemorate the release of my collection ‘FROM MY FRONT STEPS’ on June 5,
here’s an except from my second collection ‘SCOTCH AND SCARS’
all the money in the world
why would he go and hang himself?
i pondered the question
sipped my scotch
while conversation surged through the bar
an incoming tide of bewilderment
i had one more for the road.
sometimes i drive the highway
when it is empty and dark
with my eyes closed tight.
i do this without a buck to spare
in my wallet.
listen to this poem
‘FROM MY FRONT STEPS‘ RELEASE DATE JUNE 5!
