Jesse Colton Fowler
Biography of Jesse Colton Fowler
I live in Western North Carolina. I like writing poetry, I do it all the time, I don't even care if it's bad. I have things that need to be said. I love people and I love the natural world. I hate that the two don't get along very well.
Jesse Colton Fowler Poems
I'M In A Pretty Place
I'm in a pretty place, but I'm with the wrong people.
This goldfish in a bowl, ugly and deformed,
I spent a week out on a farm, meeting chickens and greeting cows,
Object At Rest (I, Matter)
I have been in stars, dinosaurs, ancient ferns, and early oceans, cumulus clouds, armored fish, and primitive crustaceans.
To Kill A Thought
To kill a thought, you fight it with another,
Plant On A Windowsill
Sit on your windowsill, look at outside,
This goldfish in a bowl,
ugly and deformed,
with a mind the same to match,
could have been beautiful.
But he forgot three seconds after he was born.
