Biography of Marc Mannheimer

I am a mental health worker,43, from an upper-middle-class, Republican family. Not the makings of much creatively. But my main weakness is my main strength - I've been mentally ill for twenty years, and I've seen the black sludge at the bottom of the Gutbucket Pond in winter, so there's a little creative fodder there. Still, I generally like to write things that might give the reader a little smile.

Marc Mannheimer's Works:

A small chapbook of poems, As He Supports You From Within, put out in early 2008, and one put out in 2009, She Heals with a Word. Poems published in the Doubting Thomas Quarterly, the Lakewood Observer, and the Cleveland Reader, and online @ messymagazine and Deep Cleveland Junkmail Oracle. Updates


The last time I saw my first therapist
she was standing at the door waving in her red dress
She was a middle-aged lady, a little plump, no hint of gray
Her mood was always moderate; she seemed to be on top of it

But I was very young
and the surety of my “knowledge”
kept me from hearing
what I needed to hear
