Boring stuff (You know, like facts, and all)
I guess it’s time to actually write a sort of bio about me (since my about me is actually not what people expected, and since I actually have a few people reading my blog.)
My name is David. I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. It’s the city that raised the champion Michael Phelps and the city that killed Edgar Allan Poe. I have three wonderful sisters and two amazing parents. I studied Community Development at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA. Currently I’m working three jobs and trying to pay off student loans and writing poems in my spare time.
I love to read poetry and love to write poetry, though like most people I’ve never been formally trained. I also like the tone a photograph can set for an entire poem–the emphasis it can add or the spin it can give. Some would say it’s cheating–I say it’s enhancing. I’m in the process of pairing each poem with a picture… don’t hold your breath. You can check way back in the blog’s archives to see how far I’ve gotten.
I could spout a fount of useless knowledge to you about myself, but who wants that? (Even though you apparently do, since you clicked on this tab) I’ll spare you the wasted energy of reading what you don’t need to know and just instead leave three questions:
1. Who are you and why do you read poetry (or perhaps–why do you read my poetry, if that’s not too vain of a question)?
2. What’s your favorite poem and why?
3. What else would you like to know about me? (Can you tell I’ve worked in customer service? I’m interested in what you want to know!)
