A big shoutout to Bewildering Stories for publishing the narrative poem.

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. This is a tough one. There are people like Garvey although I have not known any personally. This is a sad but true story in your poem.

  2. Paul Smith

    I used to blame people like Garvey for their fate, until someone pointed out how illogical I was being. If it is their fate, they, by definition, did not choose it. They are not responsible for something that was always going to happen to them.

  3. This is sad, but yet beautifully told.
    Garveys come in all shapes and sizes and with varying habits. Tormented souls always trying to fit or perhaps to stand out.
    Sending blessings and prayers to them, and to you a blessed weekend! ❤❤

  4. Such a tragic story, respectfully told.
