Introduction to Max

Last night, at Spoken Word Classes – with Missie Peters, we wrote introduction poems about other people.  (We were given very limited time and the expectation was not perfection.)

Words have always intrigued Max
Memorized a poem as a way to relax
His name is not short for anything
Fiction is the genre to which he’ll bring
Tales of all the careers he’s researched
Cook, actor, teacher, skills are perched
On the tips of his fingers & deep in his mind
Storybook couplets are a way to unwind
Literary shelves is not where he’ll be
Fiction, just fiction, for Max “short-for-nothing” D.

(This is my October 30th contribution to Poem A Day October.)
