Word Monger


Being a short person, I like short poetry, especially the Japanese forms. A 5-5-5 (go-go-go) pattern so far best accommodates my writing voice. I am a compulsive rewriter.

This site is dedicated to J. Kirk Richards of Sanford, Florida and to Sharon Asselin of San Francisco. The former saved my life a couple of times and the latter gave me poetry.

Influences are Emily Dickinson, James Wright, Basho, Daisaku Ikeda, and Li Po. My favorite ice cream is Chunky Monkey and I like staying in the van while others revel on long walks at the beach.

Please lend your moral support by frequently visiting this blog.

Tell your friends, tell your enemies.

Thank you!

Bruce Jewett
