we think it was a small hammer
or mini-aluminum slugger
and though I’d lost consciousness
and minutes of my life
I woke up standing there
I’ve been through worse
and of course I’ve been through
much better
if it wasn’t for luck I’d have
never made it out of Philly
but if it wasn’t for something else
I might not be standing here
at all.

Buy me a beer?
Most of my Patrons are contributing as little as $5 a month, and they’re getting letters for it, letter pressed broadsides, live readings and songs. I’m your mutineer, and I need your help.
Above all, I’d love your readership, vis-á-vis a a few minutes of your week at less than the cost for a pint.
Patrons keep me writing until I can find someone to pay me for it. Luckily I’ve 2 pieces to be featured in music movies and hoops this month. The good news for me is that I’ll live and the good news for you is that, as a Patron you’ll have access to street-level reporting, poetry and song.
What could be better?
Please support me on Patreon.
Your Poet,
Jim Trainer
