Corner Shelf Onstage

Young: First round on me
Stay ‘til last call
Partied hard,
some success

Now: Wiser,
ready for rowdiness, revolution

Shy, depressed or
Manic, obsessed with
peace, poetry, politics,
my past

And always singing…

For the whimsically titled Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, the challenge was to write a poem about yourself in 35 words or less. Peace, and please do come to the Garden – you’ll meet interesting poets and photographers and other artists!
