In a dash to keep up and reflect the hectic pace of today’s events unfolding, many writers turn their pens to swift forms, ie poetry, cartoons and other graphic arts. In 2020, while initially planning to re-write a novel taken from mothballs, instead ike’s run over by muses rushing in from elsewhere and elsetime. What flows is page after page of narrative poetry, pegged down into small volumes, capturing the youthful underpinnings of a traditional retrospective, and topped off with the playfulness of a mischievous grandmother. The first volume, with the current working title, Akin to Anemic Cows, is under consideration for possible publication in 2021. An excerpt from a possible volume II is given below.
