I Don’t Usually Post on the Weekends

but last night I dreamt that I was at a conference (what was it about? God knows) and I spent the entire weekend talking with Bill Clinton.



What Bill Clinton Said

Although I have
mixed feelings
about The Politics
of Bill Clinton
(I don’t like them.
Where’s the MIX?)
it’s hard to resist
a good talker and when
I went to a conference
about Something who knows
what I sat next to
Bill and there we were
he and I talking
obsessively for
the conference duration.
What did you
want when you were
young I asked
and what do you
want now? He
gave anecdotal
answers in the
manner of
When I Was a Boy
long long stories
about aspirations.
Now he said,
he wants to make
the world better.
How I asked
wishing I could
say more and Bill
who seemed to be
the most charming
person on earth or one of
them spent the next
few days explaining
his life to me.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
