Shapes

Shapes

as a child
he played with

     shaped blocks

jamming them
into the appropriate place

sometimes
he would try to fit the square

     where the circle should go

he found out
that if he tried
          hard enough
he could make it work

so he did that
     the rest of his life

His first chapbook, "Suburban Rhythm," was published by cc&d through Scars Publications in September. It is available both as a free read and as an ISBN # book. His work has appeared a bunch of places, so google it. He calls Elmhurst, IL his home.
