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.
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?”

My poem, The Alchemist’s Chant, is the featured piece at Every Day Poets today. Stop by and check it out, if you get a chance.
Have your old high school or college chemistry textbook handy if you do, though. And don’t read the chant aloud unless you have your doctorate in thaumaturgy.
Witches’ Brew, my take on the infamous witches’ chant from MacBeth, is the featured poem at Every Day Poets today. As an added fancy, I structured the poem so that in print its outline is that of a stoppered bottle. I like to think that Will would have approved.
