They say you’ll be fine
They always say that
But where are you, Andrew?
Where are you
We are waiting for you
Waiting for you…
Waiting for the Andrew
Each of us
You are so
So many people
There is no ‘collective’
To me, you embody
You seem so
To focus on
Is with you
You will be fine?
What about all the rest
There is no singularity in our waiting
Are many strangers
Waiting for you
We will be fine
When you return
Come back to us

Poetry? For me, writing poetry is not an option.
It’s a response to emotion. Like cigarette smoke,
it’s fast-flowing, shapeless and with little time to capture it.
Writing poetry in an imperative. I say what I feel compelled to say.
I sell my five published books via mail order and accept major credit cards.
I don’t use PayPal. I just talk to people on the phone.
Fast, reliable service. Read my stories and see what you think.
I’m also available for hire to read my true Chicago stories to organizations
and answer all questions. I autograph my books when I sell them.
I am currently seeking an agent to do more readings.
Feel free to call me at the number above.
