      1. You’re welcome. Happy to hear on your foot. I listened to the first poem in your collection and enjoyed that as well. Great cover. Daring to be absurd has been beaten out of me over the years (pegs in the coffin?)

  1. Congratulations on getting Coffinsmith published–you know I loved that one. Just listened to you read ‘these are true stories’ also. That was excellent, and made me laugh several times, and it proves the point nothing is funny without a conscience. Sorry to hear about the confusion and daily strife, etc. It always wants to take our writing away, but of course, we can’t have that. Best of luck kicking ass and going forward.

  2. I love your poem The Coffinsmith, and it was great to read it again. So many good lines, but the image of this one made me laugh out loud: “run gorilla-knuckled into the wild.” Congratulations on your publication 🙂

    And I very much look forward to reading your digital chapbook. I’ll put some time aside soon and really take it in. What an intriguing front cover! 😀
