You see, some of the lighter work of the Beat Generation inspired me to write a little poem called "Crack a Brew." I rarely have the urge to do rhymy, patterned poetry, but this one just rolled right out like magic. I was particularly fond of this poem and, simultaneously, afraid it would never see the light of day.
Then Scott Waldyn, editor-in-chief at Literary Orphans, took a shine to it and agreed to publish it in Issue 28 along with some excellent writers.
"The primary mission of Literary Orphans is to function as a collaborative writing and arts platform, designed to present original literary work of quality, illuminated by cutting-edge photography and art, to as large of an audience as possible."
My poem is HERE. Thanks for looking. Now for some whiskey. Purely medicinal.
