Here it is, already more than a week into April and I have done nothing to publicly promote National Poetry Month! Well, it was a busy, crazy start to April, so what can I say? This year I am not attempting to write a poem a day, but I may post some new ones here. I am in more of an editing and submission mode though, so I’ll do some readings here from my YouTube channel in order to promote what others are doing to celebrate the month.
This is my second reading of a poem by Jack Spicer. Read more about him here: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/bio/jack-spicer
As for that crazy hair? I have no comment.

Why aren’t you on TV?! Thank you for sharing this one – it’s a really interesting poem. I have been reading more and more contemporary poetry recently (though still love Keats above all others) and some really feels as if it has read my thoughts. Shall check out more of Jack Spicer. x
haha, Vincent. I’m following in the ways of your ole pal Ginsberg! 🙂 And thanks, Keatsbabe! You are so sweet to me. With your sense of humor you might enjoy Billy Collins. I just got his latest volume of poems, Horoscopes for the Dead.
