Three Poems at Paper Darts

I've got three new poems — "Harry Houdini," "Michael Applebaum," and "Jon DiSalvatore" — up with Paper Darts with three illustrations by Dan Forke. (That's one of them above.)

These are from a series of poems that I'm maybe calling Person of the Day poems. Michael Applebaum is a Canadian mayor. He's probably better than Rob Ford by default. Jon DiSalvatore is a minor league hockey player. Last season he was the captain of the Houston Aeros. I started that poem while he was still playing for them.

I had a dream last night that I was hanging out with friends in a roller skating arcade and no one wanted to play a game with me where the arcade machine was in the water and you had to roller skate in the water. I was pretty disappointed. You needed two people to play, so I didn't get to play.
