(1925 / Chicago)

Biography of Fred Babbin

I am a retired school-teacher. Email me if you want my address. My poems are rather gritty for the most part, because my life has been rather gritty.
I am a member of the Buddhist Temple of Chicago. 'God' is not one of my priorities, and we are in constant confrontation. I became interested in writing poetry in September 2007, so I would not climb the walls, because I had nothing else to do when I began.
Writing poetry is the best excuse for wasting time that I can think of. I can wool-gather and sit for hours, because I am 'creating'; at least that's what my wife thinks. So I have no guilt about what I am doing.
I save my cutenes, such as it is, for my poetry.

Poems

I am so pregnant
with you, poems-
I work so hard to give you birth.
I love you all
as a child is loved…
And though I cannot be a mother,
I have surely brought you forth.
We can always dance together-
You will be my rest and comfort-
You will be my good resource.
You will make me feel alive.
