started April something 2016
don’t make me look it up
i’m doing 4 other things right now
it was the end of the month
spelled wrong it makes me cry
This is my stuff from high school to I’m Still Doing This…
Consider it a Child’s Garden of Verses for Grown-Ups.
Besides this fabulous Robert Louis Stevenson collection that occupied my childhood obsessively, some of my other versification influences included Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, AA Milne, Heinrich Hoffman, Ogden Nash, Shel Silverstein, Dr. Seuss….
…but they all had incredible illustrations that were the perfect companions to their verses, so to shield you from my own bad art (except the logo and maybe a doodle or family photo or two) and in the absence of a reliable collaborator, I have borrowed liberally & almost entirely from those generous artists who post their excellent work for free for all to use.
I hope you will spend at least as much time gazing at each incredible artwork as you do reading the verse that/it accompanies. wow, that’s a cool slash break. works all 3 ways. cool. seriously, i get lost in most of these pictures. i hope you’ll check out the links if i had ’em to give.
if one of these graphic masterpieces is yours and I don’t have you credited, please let me fix that immediately! i’ll be happy to put in or change a link, contact me here with the link. contact me there even if you’re not a visual artist and just want to chat. or feel free to post comments here or on a particular verse.
also, to you artists out there who i don’t have anything by, especially fine art or mixed media, i’d love to explore some cooperative collaborations…
let me know if there’s more you want to know
but I think i’ve told you all you need to know
you’ll see me if you scroll
not all of it is true
but here’s one clue for you
some of it is
i’m not trying to make it some mystery
if you read it you’ll piece out my history
if you go by the dates at the bottom
and not in the order i’ve got ’em
besides there’s plenty of people who know me
some people i’d even call homie
and for reasons medically induced
some pieces are getting too loose
so now the more i see of my profile
the more i need keeping it low-style
