Craig Allen Conrad

Found this poem on Silliman with a lengthy review of Deviant Propulsion by CAConrad, one of the Philly folk I'm looking forward to meeting in person. Jordan Davis says this is about as close to "living verse" as you'll find this year, and I have to agree. Terrific energy.

It's True I Tell Ya

My Father Is a 50¢
Party Balloon

my father paper thin
lost on the basement floor

but who will put their lips
to his stiff old hard-on?
who will blow him up?
who will want this
man floating
stupid
stuck in
a tree again?
