I'm not fancy


Blog Posted:3/25/2008 2:24:00 PM

What I try to do is communicate with everyone. After all, that's what poetry should be about. So, my stuff is simple and, I hope, easily understood by anyone with a decent education. I love poetry soup because people let it all hang out with their poetic thoughts when other forms of communication hold back. From what I've read, I don't get the idea of a closed shop which so many modern poets seem to inhabit. I speak of the big names. Understand, I don't put state of the art down; I simply don't know the lingo....am trying to learn. Meanwhile, I write stuff that's simple....really off the top of my head.  Hope it communicates - Daver

    Not Mr Fancypants, huh?:) My poetry might at times feel ambiguous, but most is meaningful to me.:( I won't write direct, when I think it might insult or hurt another. Other times I will need to air an issue to be able to deal with it. "Royal Crap" was about crazy drug pushers...I don't take drugs, but there are many living here abouts. The 'Calamity poems started as a she, but it was more fun as a he....blah blah blah! Happy Easter, Daver!! Love, Mikki
