Reading from Chapbook, An Underground Bard.

Someone asked me if I was a poet. I said no I am a film maker. Yet in truth I am a poet, an underground bard.

While sitting at Kaiser Hospital a man asked me if I was a Poet.

I had on my “Fear the Poet” T-Shirt which I received from the Professor and students from Whittier College with a card after giving a talk about Punk Rock.

I told the man I am an underground bard, Poet. Then he said,

“What happens when you are no longer underground.”

I did not answer him.

 Yet I think often upon his question.

I am content.
