Best James Knox Poems

+ Fav Poet


Orwell, Hemingway, King
Reading is my favorite thing 
Without books I would be a bird with one wing

Poe, Twain, Joyce
What I do with my free time is read 
That is my choice
I plan on writing my own book soon because my pen is my voice

Shelley, Lovecraft, Tzu
Books make me me 
What makes you you ?
