Here are some poems. I’m trying hard to write poems that don’t rhyme now, on the advice of my friend Chris Parkinson (famous poet). He’s a real pro and might be insulted by my name dropping him in this amateur context, so if you see him, don’t say anything.

I’m mainly posting new ones because the old ones are even worse than the new ones, and I can’t find most of the old ones anyway.
