I have three poems up a Five:2:One today, including an MP3 recording of my reading it.
“swampy conjunction”, “closing my eyes is a trust fall with my imagination”, and “one like equals” are all products of this past August, when after attending the Barrelhouse Writer’s Camp in Pennsylvania, I wrote a poem a day the rest of the month.
The project was fun, considering I never write poetry, and thanks to the guidance and subtle nudge from my new friend Christina Beasley, I managed to write about 25 poems. I thought three of them turned out pretty solid, and so I sent them out around the time Hurricane Irma flooded downtown Jacksonville.
Hopefully you enjoy, because I’ve decided to dedicate some time to writing poetry for the time being. Hopefully a chapbook or something will come out of it.
