Welcome to my poetry site ...

michaelschein-5


yes I said yes I will Yes.”

            - James Joyce, Ulysses

“Yes!  Ah, ‘yes’ is a word with a glorious ring!  A true universal, euphonious thing!  Engenders embracing and chasing of blues!  The very best word for the whole world to use!”

            - Jeremy Hillary Boob, Ph.D (a/k/a “Nowhere Man”)

I write too many different genres for a single website.  If you are interested in my historical writing, please CLICK HERE and/or visit MichaelSchein.com or JohnSurratt.com.  If you are looking for LiTFUSE Poets Workshop, please visit LiTFUSE.us

Like most poets, I have hundreds of unpublished poems, and versions of poems-in-progress.  Publication is incidental, random, and pleasing because it means the poem has a chance to escape & see & be seen.
