I am a simple man

I am glad you stumbled across

you will learn about me from my postings

I was a singer who could not sing

then I was a poet who could not write

tried to

learn how to write

by going into a public library

and taking home

15 poetry books a week

I took a greyhound bus

to the library and back home

always with another 15 books

I scribbled my type of poems

on paper bags and paper scraps

I will share some of these


. . . warmly,

jim wortham
