Paperback $9 - Free Shipping by Franco

Short poems about children, marriage, music, chores and general domestic bliss.


I used to write a lot of songs. I got married and started building
a house and discovered that writing short poems was quicker.

Friends stumbled upon a few that I had quietly posted online
and told me they were good...perhaps better than my guitar playing.

I still hope to post more music on this site, someday soon, but
for now, thank you for reading my poems (though it is a bit embarrassing.)

Jazz Mosquito
The most popular poem so far.

This may be my favorite:
My Favorite Thing to Step On
