Biography
Was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1949. Enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1966 and served in the Republic of Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Division. Haunted by my experiences in Vietnam I began to write poems to help me cope with the painful memories I still carry.
I am currently retired from the Baltimore City Police Department. Poems I've submitted on PoemHunter.Com are about a range of issues and things that matter to me.

Ode To Baltimore
Rode by houses
I lived in in the day
Now boarded-up relics
wood rot and decay

Sick
Flat on my back
All sick and blue
Long cold days of winter
With nothing to do

The more I read of poet Mize's words, the more I like them, the more I want to read them. Very good words indeed.
