Hear the song
Love & Misadventure is a book of poetry that made the leap from self-published works available on the internet to being available in your local bookstores in a physical copy you can own, keep, love, cherish, put on a shelf, carry in your bag, forget about, read again, give away t...

Back when I was with my gamer ex-boyfriend, we would give each other cards containing stupid geeky poetry for Valentine's Day: Roses are red

** The end **
Oh, yes. I dared.
Well. I am so mad because I had hig...

I wanted to like this poetry collection because a dear former student let me borrow it. I am dreading the talk we will have when I hand it back to her. Maybe I'll just say, "Thank you for sharing this book with me. That was very thoughtful of you." If the student asks me what I thought of the poe...

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL READ but equally sad
one of my favorite parts:(
“It happens like this.
