I'm a ghost now baby/I don't need your fur coat to keep me warm
I've almost completed my chapbook of blues. About half of the poems are strictly blues structured, but don't necessarily employ blues sensibilities, stylings, or subject matter really. The other 12 or so poems do employ all those things, but are not structured. It has been an interesting and helpful little experiment for me as it has thrown a poetic wrench into my poem factory gears. My poems are a little newer to me now--I feel a little more free to take a poem off the path that has been beaten by me for so long.
