Big Feature This Week At Mac’s Backs! (+ Room For Improvement?)

I’ve been talking about this in my Facebook posts for a while, but because I’m psyched, here’s one more shameless self-promotion: I’m being featured at this month’s session of Mac’s Backs’ poetry event series! Please be there this Wednesday,  August 12 at 7pm, not only to support me and the other featured readers, but also the venue, which has been a fixture in the Coventry community for years! For those not from the area, here’s the address:

1820 Coventry Road
Cleveland Heights, OH 44106
216.321.2665

My performance is going to include at least one new piece, and an optional open mic is included as well! I genuinely hope to see you there!

There is another topic I’d like to address in this post: It has come to my attention that despite my occasional reminders that I welcome feedback, I rarely receive any comments on this blog. This is an issue on which I’d like to work, and in contemplating it, I’ve formed the broader goal of improving the blog in general.

My questions for you are these:

  • What can I to encourage more interaction between my readers & myself?
    and
  • What other steps would you like to see me take to improve this blog?

Poetry à la Meme!

Good morning, everyone!

If we’re friends on Facebook, you may have noticed that I was tagged last night in a poetry meme which is currently circulating among writers. The prompt states that beginning on the day I was tagged, I am to post a poem on Facebook for 5 consecutive days. I intend to fulfill this requirement with impromptu pieces, each inspired by an aspect of the day on which it is written. I began last night with a senryū entitled “Prescription,” and I will follow up tonight with poem #2! I’ll update the list below with all five poems as they are completed:

  1. “Prescription”
  2. “A Gamer’s Acronym Soup”
  3. “An Ally’s Celebratory Reflection”
  4. Drowsy Senryū
  5. Modern Proverb

Cyberspace Senryū

I’m back! Let’s skip the excuse-making for my absence and get straight to what’s important: Poetry! Here’s a new little piece that I just came up with this evening:

AOL (Parody of “Into The Night” By Santana Ft. Chad Kroeger)

Today was an emotionally strenuous day for me and my family (if you’re friends with me on Facebook, you may know why). Here, in deliberate contrast, is a comical song parody which I wrote as a birthday gift to my brother several years ago, and which I recently edited. If you are not familiar with the song I am parodying, please scroll to the bottom of this post (below the parody) and play the embedded video.
