Crack a Brew

February has drained me, but Scott was a metaphorical Saint Bernard trotting though the snow with the mini-keg of (purely medicinal) whiskey on his collar...

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.
