Biography of John Christensen

John was born into a predominantly Hispanic household. His first tongue was Spanish(Castillian) and he has written some poems in this language. He writes what he feels and seldom re-visits his work after it has been done. He is raw and untrained in a classical sense, so his poetry reflects that. He is a writer who dabbles with poems and doesn't fully take himself seriously. He embraces comments and criticism, but seldom reacts to the latter.

Heart Attack (A Sestina)

What angelic chorals sing?
These messengers of heaven
Whose words are none of earth
Rising like mists amid the mountains
Rolling down to pastoral valleys
Stirring my fragile heart

My sullen, throbbing heart
Mumbling, for it can't quite sing
