I guess it is all political

One night about a year ago after having a beer or two at the Stagger Inn Again in Edwardsville, Megan Hudgins and I walked out to our cars where heard the strangest bird song. It was not of this world. It sounded digitized. I approached the shrubbery with caution. This bush of sorts was located about equal distance between the Napa store and the library. It was not a hoax. Half a dozen of real birds were making those sounds. I know because they tried to attack me. I wrote a poem about the sound of these birds. I thought it was just another sci-fi poem. But apparently it is political, or so says Mobius: The Journal of Social Change.


Oh and if you’re in Edwardsville sometime, stop by Stagger. Tell Tim the literati sent you. That and five bucks will get you a picture of Stag.

First Pushcart Prize Nomination

Thanks to the great people at the Lowestoft Chronicle, I just received my first Pushcart Prize nomination for the poem below!

Just incase you’re still thinking twice about clicking the link, I tell you a bit about the poem. It is called “Time Dilation Case Study” and it has the usual features like Nikola Tesla, the CIA, geo arbitrage, Belize, reggae, the AAA, and turtles all the way down. 


Sure maybe it’s a little egotistical to say first, implying that there will be many. But if you are offended, chances are you might not be a fan of my emphatic style anyway. I’ll still say thanks for stopping by!
