    you are an awesome lyrisist. keep it up

  2. Derek, I love, love, love (that would be “love cubed”) your poetry and your delivery. You NEED to be performing your work in front of huge audiences.

    • Thanks so much. I’m… working on that. I’m actually going to be including Mp3’s (maybe) with the e-book version of the chapbook, so hopefully that’ll be cool. People can hear me perform the poem or just read it for themselves. This particular poem and one other, I’ll be performing tonight at a small cafe in Augusta. And then on the 17th, actually, I’m going to this big gathering of artists to perform! I’m quite excited about that.
      Thank you so much for the comments, Lorna, as always!

  3. P.S. I just added you to the IB links under “writers” 😉

  4. So loving the concept of this – made me grin like a loon! 🙂
