Hi, I'm Kim McInnis. I live in a small, non-eventful town in southern Ontario. I'm petite, dark-haired, half-Korean, and near-sighted, but mostly a dreamer. I might be invisible, but I have a hard time telling.

I write more as a memoir than for art. I keep journals, but something in metaphor and figurative words is a safe haven to me. Behind a mask of pretty letters, I can be as honest as I want, and that's why I write. As a result, a lot of my poems come out as seemingly meaningless nonsense. I'm not much for rhymes, so I write mostly in free-verse.

Aside from writing, I like to sing, play keyboard and guitar, study Aikido, paint and draw, play Dance Dance ... more »

    Kim is a very good poet who has emotion coming out of her ears. To those like poetry hound who say her poems aren't good well they can take a hike. SHE ROCKS! ! ! . I hope you keep the poems flowing.

    Your biggest fan,

    POEM: Wonder-Kim McInnis

    Remember me (you probably don't want to) ? Reading your last few poems I have put you on my 'To Watch' list. You are writing some lovely stuff and I am looking for an eraser to go back and wipe some (of my) early comments. And those were so near your birthday.
    I still think that you might want to use a smidgen more patience as I get the impression that you are purring along very nicely and then the revv's die down.
    But great promise, in my amateur opinion.

    I posted this under your poem Wonder, thought you might miss it.

    I was told much the same thing when I was young, long ago. Well, so what? Age almost always rages at youth. And talent in youth is much rarer than in adults, keep writing. Do it for yourself.

    To my great surprise, while deciding whether to comment here and spoil your day, I find another comment aalready here.
    You are NO poet. You may have a little talent, now and then things look so so and a smidgen more promising but overall you are cluttering up the site with plain dumb junk. As the previous correspondent notes, there is no effort put into these creations (or little) and there is nothing that even smells of originality.
    Yet you churn them out like an over-confident up herself wannabe poet.
    Perhaps you should find a different hobby as I don't think the kind suggestions of poetryhound will save the day.
    Read Witkovski (on this site and perhaps you'll get a laugh out of another one totally without talent.

    Sorry Kimberly but I just don't think this stuff is very good. You have a lot of emotion, which is good, but your poems are not original and you don't seem to have put much effort into crafting them. I think you should read a lot of poetry by established poets, find some that you like, get to understand why they are recognized as being great, and let them influence you. My two cents.

Best Poem of Kim McInnis

Food Processor

I am the most useful thing you'd ever want.

I remember the way you glowed with excitement as you withdrew me from my florid, papery shell. The way you held me up to the light, which shone in slivers across my creamy exterior. You marvelled at the sleekness of my blades, the speed as which they promised to slice. You could almost hear the satisfying snip of steel sliding through tender, pulpy flesh; the soothing whirr of electricity coursing through my form. You said I was perfect, the only thing you were missing.

Only now it's been years since I've seen you. It's been year ...
