CA Conrad

From the wonderful Philly poet CA Conrad's the Book of Frank:

"this is your
captain" Frank says from the cockpit

"all passengers wishing to bail out
any time during our flight


I have shredded the parachutes to confetti
in celebration of our arrival."

And also:

dropped from a

"I must
try this at
ONCE! I must
try this at
ONCE!" he

CA Conrad's poems are always amusing and often grotesque. I will share the former and let you find the latter yourself.

Two more pictures from Maine. The first is of Shirley, Me, a small town located near Greenville at the bottom of Moosehead Lake. The second is of Sunkhaze National Wildlife Refuge, located only miles from where Rachel and I used to live in Milford, ME.
