Spitting Out Poetic Tales
by Frank Suskin
When I spit out poetic tales,
I listen to Rock N Roll.
The room fills with thoughts of poetic
imagery and fantasy.
The words flow into deep pockets of
Philosophy of my life in peace and war.
Where blues mix with highlites of
beauty in colors.
And the end survives in hope for more poetic tales.
I was born in Brooklyn, New York in March 1945. I grew up in Miami, Florida, and graduated Miami High School in 1963. I joined the army for three years and spent one year in Vietnam, from June 1966 to June 1967. I married my wife, Marian thirty-three years ago.
I have written poetry for about forty years, but this is my first book to be published. Vietnam, Bob Dylan, and my Lady Marian inspire me to write. It has always been easier to express my feelings in poetry than in conversation.
My hobbies include watching sports on T.V. I like Tim Tebow. I like to listen to rock n roll music. Sometimes thoughts pop out and inspire me to write.(2012, paperback, 134 pages)
