The Piker Press publishes “An Ode to a Would-Be Swimmin’ Skink”

The Piker Press today published my humorous nature poem, “An Ode to a Would-Be Swimmin’ Skink!”  For those of you who are uninitiated, a skink is a little lightning-quick iridescent lizard common in the Southern United States.)  And they even ran the photo I submitted with the poem!  (I snapped a shot of the little fella off Shenandoah Avenue here in Roanoke, VA.)

You can find the poem and the photo right here.  Thanks, as always, to Managing Editor Sand Pilarski for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful community of readers, writers and artists.

Happy Monday!  🙂



Throwback Thursday: these “nice threads!”

YES, we looked like this — and we looked ****ing AWESOME.  We need to bring this whole style BACK.

My only concern about this meme is that it originates from the 1980’s Memory Lane Facebook page, and I was dressing like this at Mary Washington College in the early 1990’s.  Was I just behind the times?  Maybe that was why people looked at me funny.

But I was big man on campus with these.  I had people literally congratulating me on my pants — and that has not happened once since the 1990’s.
