I got a fresh batch of my book of poems the other day—Full Size Pattern—and decided to make a few copies available for the bargain price of $5 dollars. The local book seller where you can find my books is The Bird’s Nest downtown. I donated the copies, so the money goes to the bookstore.

I haven’t done a poetry post in awhile. When it comes to writing, I’ve also been experiencing a dry spell. Poems, that is, not posts. I harass y’all daily with blog posts.

I finally wrote something new, though, so I’ll share it here. It’s untitled. Enjoy!

KILLING FROSTY

war against the snow
use chemicals and sand
use shovels, trucks, and salt
use anything you can

I don’t trust your snowman
the dark coal of his eyes
that pointy carrot nose
and stick arms reaching high

look away, snowman
or I will stand my ground
reveal what I carry
then bravely shoot you down

that’s just how it is
that’s simply how it goes
when the white stuff falls
war against the snow

—William Skink
