Sandwich Poets

those damn
sandwich   poets
lyricizing between
   cold cuts
        and
day-old pizza,
bursts of laughter
    ringing
 among them.

one comes up
at a party
     - i haven't seen him
       since high school - 
tells me he's so
glad to see me   human
now and those years
spent    sledding
and      keeping up
from 12th grade back
       through cub scouts
    he 
hasn't forgotten.

i wonder, sandwich poet,

have you come into
some        wisdom
these years past
or are you
      just
      stoned?

  1. This poem reminds me of of one of my own, simply because I am a big fan of the deviant punctuation… it rocks my world.

    Midterms are over which is wonderful!

    How’s life, Matt?

  2. Hey, it’s Luke from Connexions…

    So….you were going to see if anyone would leave a comment and when someone gives me a challenge, I’ll more than likely do it because well, I’m CrAzy like that…lol Anyway, this is piece is great, it not only made me hungry for some sandwiches, but I also related to it because I think I know what you are talking about. I had a similar experience, having an awkward moment with someone, wondering if they were real or just being lame, and I know they didn’t forget what happened. Maybe what I just wrote made no sense..lol, but just know I liked it..

  4. I think that poem is amazing.

    You have such a flow and I thought the second stanza was the strongest part of the poem.
