When you meet me

If you are ever around
an off-beat shop
or a cigar bar
or record shop
or used book store

you will probably find
me there
smoking a cigar,
searching for
old jazz records
or looking for
poetry books
by unknown poets
(like myself)

I’m that kind
of person

And if you see me
and say “hi”

I’ll smile back
and buy you a
ice cream cone

“Love Touching Love”

are slightly edited)

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
