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.
