people's poetry

1/2/98

on the west end of the state
where everything’s crumbling
and the sun on a clear cool day
cuts into a man’s mind like
a single edged razor

I fell one afternoon into the most
hopeless of traps,
the unflinching stare of a  
well put together
young woman

— Mike Bolser

Mike Bolser describes himself as “a rabble-rouser and a jack-of-all-trades who believes there are in fact “things to do” in Springfield.” He says that lately he has been devoting much of his time and energy convincing his fellow citizens of this.
