Today I want
to tell you
a story said
our intrepid guide
how my sister
got engaged to
one man who
fixed engines. Right
before their wedding
he disappeared.
We heard
boat people
took him.
Ten years
went by. One
night he
knocked at
our door. We
thought he
was a ghost.
Now they live
in Pittsburgh.
She runs
a nail parlor.
He has
a good job.
If you saw them
you wouldn’t
know any
of this.

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.
