Born a small wooden boy Tom was sent to school, but got distracted and joined a traveling show instead.
Becoming disalusioned he left the theatre and ran with the wrong crowd eventually becoming a real ass.
Later he was swallowed, then escaped, from a whale.
As of late he works helping other wooden people find thier place in the world.
He still dreams that someday he'll become a real boy more »

Best Poem of Tom Foster

Wisdom

I’ve lost better poems than this
Boxes crammed
Notebooks full abandoned
Under rapid retreat
Poems
Lines
Scribbled on a Del taco napkin or
On the back of the phone bill
Thrown away with the trash

Once in awhile one returns to me
Flash of insight like
When walking or
Mowing the lawn
Sometimes I remember them vaguely
A title
A clever phrase
Other times nothing
Not even enough to
Miss what I’ve forgotten
Only the knowledge that
I have indeed
Lost better poems than this

Read the full of Wisdom
