Broadsides of my poetry are available from these publishers.
“Happy Birthday to Me,” a prose poem about a boy and his zombie, was published in 2012 by Architrave Press.
The press described the poem as:
Willy is a very odd guy, but humorously so. It’s hard not to chuckle at his “conversation pit (filled with alligators and musty water)” or the cobra sitting in his chair, because they’re so over the top. Who keeps such creatures around the house? A guy like Willy, for whom a look-alike zombie turns out to be the perfect gift – and therein lies the heart of this poem: it’s friendship. Bianca understands and accepts Willy as he is. She sees him more clearly than he (at least at first) sees himself and she responds accordingly. That’s a true friend.
It can be read in its entirety HERE.
