Reading – don’t stop

July 19, 2017

So how ignorant do YOU look?

Follow me on this – when you graduate college, you look back on HS grads as not well read enough. OK but let’s say you leave college and never read again. What do you think people that keep reading from then on for 10-50 years think of you college grads?

The Literacy Site has a chart that says these facts:

33% of HS grads never read another book the rest of their lives. 42% of college grads never read another book after college.
70% of US adults have not been in a bookstore the last five years. 80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year.

WIS – Should I add This Poem

July 1, 2017

Dear Reader, my sci-fi novel Writings in Science, a History of the Future, is finished and out there for all to read. But in the 2nd ed. should I add this poem?

sew me up
a shinning star
with a helium needle
and hydrogen thread

sew me up
a galaxy cluster
with a stout
gravity ray.

sew me up
all that is
over the voids
and around the edges.

Novel (two poems)

June 15, 2017

novels meander
with excess fat
short stories are lean
and all is taut.

a novel is
spilled paint
a short story is
a single line.
