Episode 016: Goodfellow

Inspired by a late night conversation with an actor acquaintance on the back porch of where I lived at the time comes "Goodfellow." Of course, he was playing 'Puck' in A Midsummer Night's Dream at the time, thus the framing of the tale. It wasn't my first choice for this week, but I didn't care for my initial choice and found this gem. It's one of the most faithfully rhythmic poems I've written, though I'll confess coming back to it years later the story it tells feels a wee bit thin. Still, enjoy the rhyme scheme and the rhythm.

Hey, I'd love to hear what you think of the podcast, whether it's a specific poem or the format, or whatever's on your mind! Leave a review or a comment in your podcast app, or catch me on Twitter @Lefthandrob.

After listening to the podcast (or while listening), visit one of these sites and donate for the cause, because All Black Lives Matter and my fellow white (and cis) people we need to get in the game:

Donate to Black Lives Matter

Donate to the Souther Poverty Law Center

Donate to the Equal Justice Initiative

Transgender Law Center

The poems will continue to flow, but so must the Justice.
