How to Be An American Series poem at Burlesque Press

3 Jan

And here we are, on the other side of big roll over from 2013 to 2014.

Hopefully we all made it.

And here’s a nice way to start out the year – with a poem – published by the fine folks at Burlesque Press. It’s from the How to Be An American series that I’ve been working on entitled¬†We Can Stand the Sound of Progress Like Jackhammers and Chainsaws But We Do Not Feel Our Neighbor Has the Right to Disturb Our Peace.

It’s based on a true story about me, in the snow, late at night, after a wee bit too much wine, yelling at the guys driving the plow in my pink fuzzy pajamas with skulls on them. Needless to say, a good time was had by all.

Many thanks to Burlesque Press for giving this poem a home.

Peace Love and Starbursts,

Ally
