At some point in a writer's life he inevitably tries his hand at writing poetry. This usually occurs at an early age when he either hopes to impress an out-of-reach girl or because he's fallen under the delusion that everything matters and he must contribute his two cents to the subject. Those with sense file these efforts in a secret place and do not inflict them on the public. The rest do not.
If there is any value in such undertakings, it's to show that everyone was young once, and that beauty, truth, and meaning are to be found in the eye of the beholder.
About the Author
"First you're an unknown, then you write one book and you move up to obscurity." — Martin Meyers I published my first book in 2004. It became an immediate collector's item. I know this for a fact as I have several hundred copies collecting dust in my attic. Critics everywhere said it belonged right up there between Ernest Hemingway and Robert E Howard—on an alphabetical bookshelf. My influences include Rocky & Bullwinkle, 1950s sci-fi movies, and silver-age comics. I live in Texas with my Princess wife, and cats Rocky and Dusty.
