The Leaf Blower

is my last piece as featured poet. Check it out and let me know in the comments what you thought about it.

Merci beaucoup!

  1. powerful and pained imagery here. I’m not an unkind person but with so many homeless, seeing someone as a human being under all that debris – I need to be reminded that I am fortunate to have a clean and comfortable life. And the image of the homeless man’s worn-through “shoes” haunts me.

  2. That poem made me tear up, and I’m haunted by the thought of what has happened to the man. It reminds me of a man that used to wait by the bus stop each morning when I went into the office and implored each of us to give him money for food. I found him irritating… until the morning he was not there.
