Postal poetry has published a photo by Fernando Sousa entitled, “Aerosol Man,” accompanied by a short poem I wrote. Rethabile also wrote to this photo as part of postal poetry’s October contest.
Here’s a postcard poem I made the other day. It was a little too silly to send to postal poetry, but I’m going to post it here because I think we could all use some levity, in light of the global economy, war, vitriolic elections in the US, well, the list goes on.
The postcard is from a beach I visit every year with my family. The stickers are from the Pirates of the Caribbean series by Hallmark. If you like to talk like a pirate, and who doesn’t, go to the Original Talk Like a Pirate website. They have a translator link, and you can even send pirate-talk emails.

Awesome! You and Rethabile both have done a great job. The picture is really cool, too.
Call me childish…but I LOVE pirates!!! Blackbead’s Queen Anne’s Revenge was unearthed not too far from my home. And Anne Bonny rocks!! Er…sorry…I get carried away.
Yeah, pirates make the 18th Century seem like fun. Your post cards are great. “Bring soup” is so good.
Ha. My boys would love this.
You’re so right. We need levity and lightness. Even with Tuesday.
I love the sticker on postcard, immediate collage thing. Fun. (Silly is good. I love silly.)
