Today: "You Keyed My Car" by Fred Zackel
Tuesday: Two Poems by Gerald So
Thursday: "Ghost" by Keith Snyder
From poet and contributor, Gerald So:
I'm honored to be part of a special week of hard-hitting poetry at BTAP and to accept David's invitation to do a writeup on each poem.Here is Mr. Zackel at BEAT to a PULP with "You Keyed My Car."
Fred Zackel kicks off the week with "You Keyed My Car." In just its title, I hear metal on metal. I've always stumbled on the aftermath, the cowardly/brazen scrape. The world-weary speaker in Fred's poem doesn't just spot a keyer in the act. Moments before, he sees through to the punk's soul.
