    Brian, you are one of the few here who recognizes good poetry from total crap; Have been here many years and have seen it all. Really hope that you stay - continue sharing your great poetry and do not ever stop commenting. You are honest and brave and recognize - the awesome and the almost grade school writes of those who love to throw around big names and quotes but who make many mistakes in the writing of their gibberish. Tell you at times, i feel as if i am visiting the loony bin. Do not know what has happened to this once highly held-respected site but it has lost a lot of it's credibility since December. Anyway, just wanted to say, keep on, keepin' on. Maybe this site can be saved.

    do yourself a favor (if you are like me) and check out Brian's The Possum. maybe not for the staunch animal-lover.

    The guy's a nut and loads of fun. He entertains as many do not.

    I have truly enjoyed perusing Brian Mayo's poetry and prose. He's caught me off guard and made me laugh or gasp too many times to count. I actually stole one of his poems and claimed it as my own, but then he skillfully brought it back with a piece of attached twine. He is masterful with his pen, his wit, and his satire. He's actually kind of fearless in his writing, tackling subjects including: Christ, the devil, poem, drones, and paper napkins. He's crafty with rhymes, but equally good with his prose, storytelling, and ability to evoke strong, beautiful, and sometimes, unsettling images. Pretty much all of his pieces have a strong message to impart, despite the fact that some may appear 'cute' or simple on the outside. The 'tell-tale heart' beats within the candy she'll exterior. Read his poems... But be careful... They BITE! ;)

    I see Brian as ingeniuos poet, granted with splendid imagination, lucent style and wonderfully rational expression, creating poems of superb harmony and thrilling beauty. From haiku and gentle lyrics to witty humorous pieces. My favorite are the latter, where in bright colours, he strikes various faces of prejudice, superstition or adoration, using original imaginative discourse permeated with more or less overt irony, to my mind echoing Gulliver's travels. It also sounds like surpassing present issues, in the service of true humanity, always along but rarely awaken.

Steal This Poem

Here’s a poem for you to steal
Just take it; don’t be shy
I’m sure the man who wrote it has
An adequate supply.

It’s just the poem you’re looking for-
Amusing and succinct
Yet bad enough for people to
Believe it’s one you inked.

You simply highlight all the text
And copy with one click
Then paste it anywhere you want
It’s really just that quick.

Don’t stop now; just one more step
And then this poem you’ll claim
It’s really just a little thing…
You’ve got to sign your name.

The Possum

My father was a poet and my mother was depressed
The bed that she got pregnant on was quickly repossessed
Now homeless, she gave birth to me on cold November ground
And there she left me lay because I only weighed a pound

I struggled to the gutter seeking warmth, but finding none
I wondered if my life was ending ‘fore it had begun
I knew I needed shelter; knew my time was growing short
And so I started screaming as a loud and last resort
