My Cart 


Michael Estabrook


Trying out for the Senior Class Play’s
romantic lead opposite my girl but coming in
second to popular handsome hunky Everett
then having to watch him romancing her
on-stage from backstage for weeks.

Michael Estabrook is a recently retired baby boomer child-of-the-sixties poet freed finally after working 40 years for "The Man” (and, sometimes, "The Woman"). No more useless meetings under florescent lights in stuffy windowless rooms. Now he's able to devote serious time to making better poems when he's not, of course, trying to satisfy his wife's legendary Honey-Do List.

Sweet and funny poem. Michael could also adapt his bio to poetic form, for a similar style!

Breathes there the man whose heart is not pierced by the arrow of this poem?
