2020-10-31 – Mikey Masters

I’ve been nursing a notion to write a series of short books for youngsters and young at heartsters about five suburban kids in a beige bread neighborhood. Clearly, I can’t be more transparent at this time. I began with some loose mental character sketching and since I spend so much of my waking time rhyming when in the “zone”, the first sketch also unraveled in poem form. Guess it’s the point where habit becomes ritual and a pass-time starts to feel like porn.

Mikey Masters

disaffected, smarty
type with a loose
thinking
mind,

wise as a loner
though he loves
to share all
he has,

great sense of
humour,

charming in a
humble way, sulky
when he doesn’t
get his way

loves to sketch backdrops
that always appear
more vibrant
then their
muse,

never afraid to
play the game
though he
knows

he may
lose.
