    To the witty man that cracked me up by stating...'perversion isn't a hobby, it's a lifestyle!

    Bloody brilliant! Brutally honest, cynical yet strangly upliting outlook that is so well expressed. Hands up to a poetic genius! (btw, i'm new at this, so if you wanna give me some tips...)

    Just checked out your work again. I am fishing for something new.You amplify my lack of talent. I dig your style, look forward to reading your poems in the future. I want to invent a drink and name it after you, too bad pink squirrel is already taken.

    You are amazing, wild, sharp, witty, edgy, now, subtle, succinct, even lovable, and dammit talented. Now I know why I hate you.

    I know I’ve commented here before, but I need to again:
    Many of your poems have humor, some the blunt truth,
    In the case of Christine, amazing fragile beauty! Always
    Continue to express your vision, Jake!

    a. jacob, Thanks for the advice on my poem, I've made a change in the verse you suggested and I believe it works well. I like the way you use rhyme particulary in 'The Rejection Slip'. I see you are from Philadelphia...I grew up there and still work in the city. Thanks again for the advice and keep on producing poetry.

    Wow! Such an imagination. I enjoyed almost everything of yours in this site. It's left me craving for more. I'm espescially impressed with Burelesque Haiku, Big Easy, and Fingerprints. Theyu're my favorite. Write on, Jake!

Best Poem of Rev. Dr. A. Jacob Hassler


how i wish my fingers were the bristles
or my breath were the wind when it whistles
thru your hair, thru your hair

i wish you'd hold me in your hands
and let me skate thru all the strands
of your hair, of your hair

i could style it anyway you like it
i could brush it straight or even spike it
au contraire! au contraire!

or i would wait patiently in my box
until next i would comb the locks
of your hair, of your hair

i would braid it tight, tousle, and tease!
or pull it back in a ponytail, if you please;
if you dare, if you ...

Read the full of Hairbrush

Very Same Firsts

before i met you,
i had already done everything
for the first time

while we were together,
those very same firsts
i had done the first time with you

and now you're gone

and it's been so hard for me
to do those very same firsts
for the first time without you
