I am a simple man

i am glad you found me

i’ve written poetry books

since the 60s, 70s and 80s

i was a singer who could

not sing

so

i  turned to

poetry 

 

 I learned to write

by going to the library

finding 12 poetry books

to take home and

digest their styles

i road a greyhound bus

to the library

and back to my

dimly lit 

attic apartment

with library books in a bag

that’s how i taught

myself to write poetry
