April is National Poetry Month. In recognition of it, I would like to feature local Southeastern Wisconsin poets by posting poems throughout the month. If you know of any poets from the Milwaukee Metro area, mention it to them and have them send me some poems, a short bio, and a website/blog address if they have one. I will try and fill in the blanks with my own work or other favorites.
Another poem from Mario Medina, who I featured yesterday.
Painter of Dead Things by Mario Medina
I'm that Uncle of yours
that tells you that
Santa Claus isn't real.
Until proven otherwise when
you find that fat man in his red suit
robbing your home.
