postal poetry

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.
