OF BOOKSHELVES AND RECORD CABINETS

I'm a published poet and short story author where music and books were the load bearing walls of my childhood. This led to a love of movies, anything from Bogart to Clooney. My heros are Margaret Atwood, Hugh Laurie, and The Beatles. I was lucky enough to have met Ms. Atwood, taught by Thomas Lux, and to have heard Drake Bell play his own music and cover The Beatles three times. My name is Veronica. Let's get passionate.

A really reputable author who follows me on Twitter, and I him, asked me to join in on a writers blog group. He liked my work. This is like the time I was picked to be one of 5 writers to judge a citywide poetry contest (city pop. 800,000.) 

It leads me to think, who is blessing me? 

The prose poem, which often seems like a French import, has had a strong underground American life. Edward Hirsch on this week’s poetic term: Prose Poem. (via poetsorg)

My cousin got hit by a truck.
He’s fine nothing broken but he has the sickest bruise ever!! Like holy shit you can see the outline of his muscles and bones on his chest?
This thing is awesome.  I told him he should get it tatted to always remember that he survived getting hit by a truck lol

At my son’s therapy session today, he bolted out of the building toward a busy street. We got him, he’s ok. And certain members of my family don’t think I work for a living.
