I drive in
early the morn,
I be beast
for the man
my cup says hope,
my brain says dope,
the man goes
my screen says,
is always present,
my screen blares
in dark forest.
I punch keyboards,
hope all fraud
and then I
poetry all day.
from the others.
I might be
if I could
poetry all day.

Have you thought of self publish book? My first 100 cartoon book with create space should be ready soon. It is print on demand through amazon. I have had to shell out over $1,800 as start up. One reason is set up 100 full color plates not mere text and book will be expensive to manufacture as well putting sale cost at $17.00 with $2.00 royalty per book for me. You could get going for less than half of that cost.

But you have audience for your magnificent work! 🙂
Despite my lack of confidence, I have entered a couple contests, but I never contemplated publishing. Unlike your situation, I think I would try to e-publish and not worry about a book/book. I haven’t used color and formatting tricks have not been part of my hand.
I appreciate your generous comments.

sometimes for me writing poetry helps in moments when i’m totally down – sometimes i just can’t get a single word to paper… it depends..on what…? i dunno exactly…

I don’t know either. Sometimes, if I just have one image, I just need to pick up the pen and things seem to flow. Thanks for the visit, Claudia.

Thank you, Jamie! I have fun with that thing. Some of the photos on Tumblr are amazing, and it is built for reblogging things like that
