Shameless Self-Promotion

Basic RGBNeed a last minute gift this holiday season? My chapbook Milkshakes & Chilidogs and other food poems is available. You’ll get 24 tasty poems for $4.95 paperback or $1.99 digital with zero calories!

Here’s a sample from the dessert section, one of my holiday chocolate poems.

Treasure

Small bag
of silent coins
gold and silver
foil-wrapped
treasure

They do not jingle
jingle all the way
beautiful as winter
sparking stars
held in the hands
of a greedy boy

More valuable
than precious metals
more fleeting
lost on a spin of shin
more delicate
melting on fingers
and lips

Give me no objects
wrapped in pretty paper
treasure to bury
or clutter shelves
collect dust

Give me events
a smile a wink a glance
moments lost forever
a small plate with two forks
volatile unreliable
sweet memories
to treasure

Give me art
to consume
with you
for a taste
of eternity

    This sums it up for me, “a small plate with two forks.” sharing a moment is the best gift. Good luck with your book.

  5. Congratulations on your book… I hope to try a slice. :)
