Reading From California Beat Poetry


Page 127 Andy Dick

Just Josh and me

rather Josh and I

yearned for a beer

and that’s all

to talk

of things





The Pig and Whistle

didn’t mind

One half beer later

Andy and friend strolled by

Josh knew what to do

My head spun twice

Andy took the stool next to mine

Long lost brother

although the prodigal

He took the liberty of visiting

our souls

By the 2nd round

we were all

pals, comrades, confidants

patrons, backers, self-creators

We told stories

sang songs

we laughed

leaving, I apologized

Josh carried on

Andy was happy

My Other Blogs

I have been blogging for years and have others that I will share on this site.

Bucher And Son is the blog that I share with my youngest son, Josh Bucher. He and I collaborate quite often, and I also put a lot of poetry on this one.

Jack Nissalke Is Innocent is one of two blogs I write for people I know that have been wrongfully convicted. I wrote a book a few years ago about Jack, called “Murder And Deceit”.

Ken Andersen Is Innocent is the second real life story about a man wrongfully convicted of murder.

The Sundance Experience is a blog mainly about the show “Rectify”” on the Sundance Channel.

Last one of the lineup is Greensmoke Poetry which is only poetry I have to offer.
