My first career was as an Air Force officer. During the second career I taught economics and business in Iowa. Twice I had poems selected as poem of the month on the Poetry Soup web site.
I have self-published three chap books under the name Thomas Crocker: “Pigs Fly”, “Cats Hunt” and “Beware the Doggerel” (March 2017).
old friends pretend
in their own minds
stalking the street
king of our cul d'sac
three old men
sit in waiting room
