    Genius

    I grew up listening to the wonderful songs he wrote for Doctor Hook. I`m only 20, but I bought a copy of an album call ``Bankrupt``at a charity shop when I was only 8, just because the guys on the cover looked so freaky. I still play that album all the time, although I own it on...

    I first read Shel Silverstein's books back

    My Favorite, "The Yipiyuk"

    In the swamplands long ago, Where the weeds and mudglumps grow, A Yipiyuk bit upon my toe… Exactly why I do not know. I kicked and cried I hollered “Oh”— The Yipiyuk would not let go. I whispered to him soft and low— The Yipiyuk would not...

    His poems make me happy.

    It's that simple, and yet so rare. I've loved them since I found Where The Sidewalk Ends in Books'a'Million at age eight. That book remains on my special shelf in the basement where I can read it any time I want.
