At everyday poets

My poem, Jab A Hook In, will be featured at Every Day Poets Friday.

It is, ostensively, about fishermen, but it has more to do with having a bit of fun with Deacon Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known to all as Lewis Carroll, and with his wonderful nonsense poem, Jabberwocky.

It was included in from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, which was published in 1872. You can read the original here.

Whatever else he may have been, the man was a genius with words.

At every day poets

My poem, Late Night Considerations, is the featured piece at Every Day Poets today.

It’s my fourth appearance and it has to do with a subject near to my heart and mind.

LNC considers ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties and things that go bump in the night. And don’t tell me you’ve never lay in bed at night, wide awake, heart skiddering, thinking, “What is that noise in the closet?”
