It is not lightly that I compare my friend, Mikel K Poet to a Bukowski, John Fante or Hunter S. Thompson. He is twisted. He is misunderstood. He is Arturio Bandini running amok through this crazy life! Mostly, he is genius in its purest, most insane form (and I say that in a good way). Not all will "get" him, but that's ok because he doesn't "get" most of us mere mortals either. His observations, stories and poetry are intriguing, thought-provoking and sometimes downright disturbing...gotta love it! --Valerie King ------------------------------------------- This is a must read for everyone who ever thought about saying 'screw the system' and wanted to face reality in the raw, but haven't, or couldn't, find the guts to do it. The Delivery Guy is a poet's journal of events and decisions facing a man trying to dig below the surface of corporate security and acceptable mythological and social hiding places, to see what's what and feel the energy of what 'is' in our era. There are no safety nets to catch Mikel in his walk through the primate insanity of the human experience in a crowded city of frightened Homo Sapiens. Mikel K is the new Charles Bukowski! --Lou Majors --------------------------------------------- "I found the book, "The Delivery Guy," by Mikel K to be a refreshing and sometimes uncomfortably honest look into the life of a modern writer struggling to come to terms with a pre-fabricated and often superficial, turn of the century, American society. The battle is dynamic and comes to an uplifting spiritually evolved conclusion. I found it a fascinating read!!!" --James Lewis --------------------------------------------- Mikel K is a poet, a journalist, and a memoirist, among many, many other Gemini things. You can buy his stunning, and weirdly funny memoir, "The Delivery Guy," on Lulu and at Amazon Kindle. --------------------------------------------- http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/mikelkpoet http://www.amazon.com/The-Delivery-Guy-ebook/dp/B00731KM5M

I find that I have less to say recently

Rate: 1 Flag

I find that I have less to say recently. I’m not sure of the reason for this, but I suspect that it might have something to do with this new pill that I am on that is supposed to curb mania. I like my mania. It is a driving force in my work. I have undergone med changes before, and the result is often the same: short term changes in my writing patterns. The writing always wins, though, it beats the pills every time.


 Some of the things that I am most endeared to

 didn’t cost much like this wooden letter holder
that uses a clothespin as the horse’s head
to hold the letters, and these 4 knives that I bought
for a dollar a piece, at the same garage sale
where I bought the clothespin horse.
The knives are probably not much good for street fights
but they make wonderful letter openers.
I was never much of a street fighting man: a drunk
brawl here and there, which mostly I lost,
and often wound up in the drunk tank for.

 I got a tuner for my guitar, yesterday, one that fits on the head of the guitar. I have been using an online tuner, anda cell phone app tuner so this is an improvement in my guitar tuner situation. I am about to buy a case for the guitar, also. I am surprised how inexpensive the soft cases are, even at expensive music stores. Will either of these things make me play better? No. But they are nice things to have and I am glad to have them.


 This guy in England just got a new hand, somebody else's hand is now his hand, and he said that he, "was looking forward to tying his shoes, and buttoning his shirt." To hear this makes me so very thankful for little things that I don't even, normally, think about.
