Regarding All That Stuff About Paddling I Wrote Before

Just a quick poem, since I’m teaching some poetry right now and this popped into my head.


Distressingly Thick-Skinned

I look to live a country lad

wearing city’s skin

a skin I fear I’ve worn so long

it grows but ever in


As always, and in spite of my creeping feeling of feeling stuck in the city,

paddle your own canoe, folks.
