Runaway Poets is about to wrap its first season. This has been a fantastic passion project, and the doors are open to anyone interested in being part of our team. We are seeking e-commerce developers, producers, camera operators, writers, musicians, and financial investors.

We’ve done our best to combine comedy, travel, conversation, and poetry. Episode six is pure poetry and more experimental than the others, but I think you’ll find it no less beautiful. Enjoy.

Fly of late autumn bush

O fly of late autumn bush
You are fat
like you have eaten for months
and flown out to die
Didn’t you feel the change?
Or was it just that good
Feasting
with friends
Until they, too, had flown
What will you do now,
fly of late autumn bush?
The nights are cold enough
to cause me shiver upon
closing the shutters
Go South, be quick!
like the wind that goes North

In Paris, there are advertisements for high-end perfumes displayed on scrolling, backlit billboards.

If you stand close enough, you can hear their mechanics creak. The plastered models sport short haircuts and tattoos.

Next to the billboards rest cigarette butts and fragments of trash. I gape as traffic whooshes angrily, remembering a cold apple and bad joke.

The perfume apparently smells of lilac, desire, and secret ingredients obtained from a natural source.

Aside

Was a busy summer for me.

I’ll start by saying that I’m not an outdoors man. I’m also not an indoors man. I’m a man who likes to sit on a well-shaded porch, somewhere in between, cold beer in hand, with solid mosquito netting. None of that, I realize, describes why it was a busy summer for me.

However, the attached video might. It’s episode #1 of a new series I’ve developed called Runaway Poets: runawaypoets.com

A show about poets produced by poets, RP is a collaborative effort to highlight the works and lifestyles of burgeoning writers from across the globe. Hope you enjoy watching.
