"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Peter Bakowski was born in Melbourne in 1954 to Polish-German parents. He writes his poems on an Apple MacBook and sometimes by hand on postcard-sized index cards. When doing so keeps in mind the following three quotes-

"Use ordinary words to say extraordinary things"
- Arthur Schopenhauer.

"Writing is painting"
- Charles Bukowski

"Make your next poem different from your last"
- attributed to Robert Frost.

Alone on the couch

Late night movie.
She throws popcorn
into her yawns.
