Our 4-Week Poetry Instructor

J Diego Frey chimes in with a few tidbits of personal info before his young writers class starts at Lighthouse Thursday February 17th (and four Thursdays thereafter) from 4 to 6pm. Interested in learning how to write fabulous poems under the guidance of someone who can write on all manner of subjects–from uncles’ toupets to feral cats? Sign up here!

From JD…

Things about me:

–Denver native

–One book published: “Umbrellas or Else”

–Strongest literary influences: Bob Frost, Ted Geisel, Mad Magazine, Mike Henry

And one of his poems, to boot:

TRIOLET FOR TEI

All of our houses have the same face,
so I gave mine a large nose.
Which I think makes it look a bit out of place
among all of these houses that share the same face.
Better that, though, than to blend without trace.
To become anonymous is to be eaten by bozos.
All of our houses have the same face,
so I gave mine a large nose.
