John W. McEwers
I have two kids, and I spent a summer in England. I love the outdoors. Poetry isn't my life, it is my oxygen. My favorite author is Tom Clancy. A close second would be Virginia Woolf. I'm trying to get better, and would like to collect my poems into a collection for publication. Any comments would be great! ! ! R.I.P. Robert
Addendum: I've learned to enjoy the indoors too. more »

John W. McEwers Poems
Mammals lay no eggs outside of their bodies because they lay them inside of their bodies. Marsupials carry babies around in sacks like babies are groceries from the corner carry-out.

Where There's Smoke, There's Failure
So it goes like this, Guy meets girl. Guy buys flowers. Girl puts them in a vase.
How to Tie a Tie.
Before we even start have that tie in your hand. this won't work unless you commit.
If I Could Only Love You
Would you live inside me if I cleaned the place up? If I worked out on a schedule and junky foods I gave up?
Go ahead, I can take the pain of you leaving. You did it before will do it again sometime
Your Love is Due
First of the month, your love is due, she says. So she can buy all the candy the kids want and take them
First Love Story At The Movies
I can still picture the old theater's gold marquee thrusting over the sidewalk, a brittle matinee ticket, and in a dim enough room-smell the seats, the satiny wash of crushed chocolate and sweat,
Who's That on My Lawn?
I lived through Iraq and Vietnam. My lawn is mine to mow and mine alone.
I remember when I was a kid, I ate worms after a rain I mixed dog food in my ice cream I played with frogs
Some stuff's gross like melty ice cream that sticks to your hand where it looks weird to lick
They crawl and fall on their backs big shells
Swampy Shoes aren't Happy
If you walk far enough and the day's not too cool Then inside your shoes will feel like a mule Inside it's mouth, where it chews like a camel, wet, gross saliva on hard, firm enamel.
Fattening Relationship with that Woman
If pain brings me to chef Boyardie and I eat only canned ravioli forever its cause you and me
Only when she approachers I strike and she knows how a kiss can be a deadly game of cat and mouse

Where does John fit in?
Snakes leave their skin on the ground because they are comfortable without it.
Trees leave leafs to die around them to fertilize.
Sheep need their wool to be taken from them or else they'll get too hot.
Sharks have too many teeth to ...
