Biography of Kim Barney

27 February 2020
Poem Hunter, thank you for choosing my poem " Two Chipmunks" as member poem of the day. This is the seventh poem of mine that you have selected for this honor.

3 February 2020
My monthly Contest has been cancelled because of lack of interest. Linda Bella Wassermeister has finally won the September 2018 contest, which had gone unsolved for a year and five months. See the " Poem" called CONTEST RESULTS for more information.

My name is Kim Barney, and I am male, father of four, grandfather of eighteen, and great-grandfather of five. I have four great-grandsons, and my first great-granddaughter was just born on Monday the second day of March 2020.

Kim Barney's Works:

None, but I have some titles in mind:

Nobody was Anywhere

The Lady with her Head on Backwards

I Learned to Swear at Grandma's Rook Club

Peking Tom

Memories Of Mother

It's more than fifty
years now she's been gone.
She went to heaven and
left us all alone.
Downwinders we were,
or so they called us
years later when they
found out what happened.
A small Utah town
