Happy New Year!

I resolve to get off my ass and write some new poetry. I've been putting it off for a while because I know humour will no longer be the main focus of my work. It'll certainly still be an aspect of my poetry, but I think there'll be more poignancy to the pieces. This past year was brutal... I spent a third of it in the hospital and almost died more times than I'd care to count. That changes the way you view the world. Your eyes become opened to the triviality of some of your pursuits and the importance of things you've ignored. This new Weltanschauung will be reflected in my poetry.
