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.
