We are not all ‘White, Middle-Aged, Poetry Guys!’

I am not a white, middle-aged, poetry guy.

Well, yes, I am white…

and, also, definitely middle-aged…

and a guy…

who does poetry.

But, I am not your


’white, middle-aged poetry guy’

I give up my seat to ladies on the poetry bus;

I doff my poetry hat when I meet members of the ’opposite’ poetry.

I even open poetry doors for poetry ladies (and men).

So, please don’t tar me with the ’white-middle-aged-poetry-guy’

tag; in a pejorative way;

because, I’m not your typical one.
