I am an aspiring writer in the Kern River Valley. This blog is a "test kitchen" to try different writing styles and to work through the many rejections and the handful of acceptances my work has received. But no matter what other people say about my writing, at least my mother thinks I'm a good writer!

Accepted by Concise Delight

I wrote this poem in college after a string of unpleasant dating experiences. This poem was actually accepted by __Concise Delight__, a very nice poetry magazine.


After I have shaved and deodorized and sprayed with perfume,
And wiped away all the traces of my humanity,
Then we can go and dance the night away,
Believing we are in love,
And you can enjoy the image of me,
Without the disgust of my humanity.


  1. I really like this one, Sandy! Great imagery!

  2. Thanks, Valerie! I appreciate you reading my blog!
