Biography of Jarvis Black

Jarvis Black poet

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.

Breakage

doesn't matter
how they build the man
it's still fragile framing
and childlike hurt.
it's still a lot of hard life
or no life.
it's a world meant
to eat the weak,
and if you think
that's as rough as it comes,
just hang on tight
and
don't blink.
