Jarvis Black was born in the southeast corner of Texas, against the backdropp of the Gulf of Mexico and a sky dotted by the vast petroleum refineries. Always having a love for verse, he began writing at a young age to escape his emotional state, only to define his bitter, often maudlin, no-holds-barred style by the time he'd reached his early twenties. He is a gifted musician and artist, but his first and truest love is writing. (from old wikipedia entry, now deleted)

He is the author of two anthologies of poetry, with a third, 'Madhouse Strays' to be published by summer of 2008.

Best Poem of Jarvis Black

Red Tin Can

you should have seen me:
back-peddaling and scurrying,
hurt by words and
dismissed by less.
i am like a child
hiding under beds.
ten minutes until midnight
and i feel more
like hamlet
than shakespeare
ever did
