I hope you enjoy these first youtube poetry iterations created from the amazing photos that were taken for my book, When You Can’t Scream…Or 10 Reasons Why I Smoke.
Some of my poetry will fall to the files of “whatever was I thinking,” or “wow, I’ve come so far.” Or it might just stray and never return from epic journals, random micro twitter feeds, and lonely facebook posts.
Some poems, Dr. D. Frankenstein will resurrect, piecing their worthy parts together with electrical hope. These poems may be kinder, truer than their past selves, or frightened of what they’ve become.
The following first youtube poetry is precious as printed, and now shiny with a bit more care.
From my heart to yours.
