Welcome! The Poetry Friday round-up is here this week.
Over the years, people have described me in unexpected/mistaken ways (e.g. tall, a scientist, from England, with four kids). I am from England (by way of my ancestors hundreds of years ago) and maybe I am tall-ish at 5'6", but since my thirteen-year-old daughter is a couple of inches taller than me, I don't usually think of myself that way. And I'd be hard pressed to call myself dude-like, but why not? Here's a true-story poem from several years ago:
While adding up my stuff
cashier says, "Dude, don't look
until it's over."
Interested in supporting a Kickstarter campaign for an Emily Dickinson documentary? Look here. (I want that acorn!)
Last thing before I start the InLinkz round-up...I am giving away 3 $15 Amazon Kindle gift cards (for buying books for your Kindle). Email me or leave a note in the comments if you want one.
