If I only had a brainI'd trust more peopleand eat more fish.I'd celebrate Arbor Dayby Krazy Gluing a pine coneto my forehead I wouldn't pay more to see a moviethan I would to eat a full meal.I'd have my voice box removedand replaced with a computer chipso that I could say "Hello and welcometo Moviefone!" I'd shut the world down for a dayand get a good night's sleepbut most of all -excerpted from the poem "if i only had a brain"Michael Passafiume began writing when he was in the third grade, and hasn't stopped since.Whether revisiting the ghosts of his childhood, picking apart the ever-elusive American Dream, or wrestling with the meanings of life and love, Passafiume's poetry lays bare the disillusionment, fear and hope that resides in us all.A longtime proponent of poetry for and about the masses, the author is unabashed in his belief that "poetry that cannot be understood by the reader is alienating and irrelevant."This book might just change your notion of this helter-skelter world. It might make you reassess your own life.It might even make you believe in poetry again.
