Posted by in Verse Us

I am happy to report that my blackout poems “The Path” & “Idea” can be found in issue 29 of  Failed Haiku! Blackout poems have recently achieved popularity because of Austin Kleon’s book Newspaper Blackout.  I found the poems in the book “Hood: Trailblazer of the Genomics Age”.

Downtown – Verse Us (Poems by Me)

Posted by in Verse Us

Downtown The horizon is brought. Out on the floor in Lowell. Before the youth burst And everyone’s ears are blasted, There is the smell of urgency That something real will bloom; On a riff, or some contact, or a word.
