Biography of Jeffrey McDaniel

I am not Jeffrey McDaniel; I just simply adore the man and his way with words. I want to get his poetry out there for others to enjoy.
And he's from my city. =)

On the scales of desire, your absence weighs more
than someone else’s presence, so I say no thanks

to the woman who throws her girdle at my feet,
as I dropp a postcard in the mailbox and watch it

throb like a blue heart in the dark. Your eyes
are so green – one of your parents must be
