Sharing a poem is about the most stripped-naked activity I have done, directly behind participating in high school sports which was still more terrible.
Omg I totally agree.
That's a ride!
I remember being very intrigued (and skeptical) that this poem is just called “Poem” and the way it made my heart sped up and up and up right until the finish and I thought “Ahh!! I'll never forget that!" and now, sure enough, almost a decade later I still very much remember that experience and I love to re-read it.
Great find Bill, love this! More poetry on Readup - let the hair raising begin!
I love the form, cadence, flow, casualness, images, story - narration. Lovely combination of humor and sensitive insights. Really love this, a keeper. Will checkout more of Goetsch.
