Brevity, with apologies to William Shakespeare


It’s the soul of wit
or a bowl of spit
can’t remember

(for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, “Brevity” in 12 words.)

If you missed this past Sunday’s FUMFA Poets & Writers Live, you can still watch it on YouTube. I was honored to appear with four of my fellow Living Poets and I think we did a pretty good job.
