Poem-atic





Ecuadorian Poet

Her language is Spanglish
Her accent is thick
she delivers a couple
of poems every week

She's a master at word play
her work's off-the-hook!
she would dearly appreciate it
if you purchase her book



Pretty

The one time I feel pretty
is when I'm pretty sure
that one day I'll be selling
in all the local stores

To critics everywhere
and all poetic fans:
My naked soul I bare...
... and I thank you in advance

(c) JH



ABOUT THE BOOK



The title of my book came about as I was writing a poem
The poem was originally called "bio"
it was to describe me, what i liked, what i was like...
one of the lines had the words "Love is... addict" in it
which is the name of my favorite comic Love is...
I needed a word that rhymed with the word addict

As I'm addicted to my poems (I'm my biggest fan) :)
I thought, why not "Poem-atic"?
At first, I thought I had made up this word
without realizing that this word was already in the dictionary
When it was decided that I would call my book "Poem-atic"
the title of the poem was no longer "bio" but the word itself


"Poem-atic" is a collection of poems in which word play is one of its main ingredients
Imagine if we could order a baby at our favorite restaurant. How fantastic is that?
Or literally eat a "hot" dog. The thought!
How about riding a poem all the way to South America?
Many of us can write poems, but have you ever ridden one?
Picture it! The possibilities are endless!

This book is comprised of small engaging poems
They are brief and to the point
Read them out loud to your family and friends
Share them, pass them on
Buy this book for yourself or as a gift to someone you love
I promise you, it will be money well-spent!




Poem-atic is...

One hundred and nine poems
for your reading pleasure
quality that can't be beat
rhymes for you to treasure

Purchase it online
or locally upon request
an investment in brain food
and one you won't regret

Excerpt from Poem-atic:

HOT DOG



Why would you eat a hot dog?


The thought just makes me frown


You wouldn't eat your daughter


Just give the dog some water



and make sure you cool him down





Excerpt from Poetry is... (chapbook):


Depressed



My breasts are depressed!
I wonder what
on earth it will take
to cheer them up

Any suggestions?
Got any ideas?
I sure could use
some volunteers
