    Any way a person can ‘order’ a poem?
    I have enjoyed reading the piece you wrote for me awhile back and I would like to have another made for someone

    • Hi Lisa, glad you liked your poem! Anytime you see me out on Pacific Ave (typically Fri/Sat) I’d be happy to write for you again. I’ve tried doing orders online and I don’t know why but the magic disappears. Hope to see you soon!
