Jimmy the Baker’s Pocket MFA, poem by Dennis Mahagin

Read­ing is easy,

writ­ing is hard;

so we watch a little

TV, sour­dough

loaf, fudge

brown­ie, our very


becom­ing human

scones, juicy peach

cob­bler, reluctant

steam from pie holes,

each to her own



edi­fied, serially

and hor­rif­i­cal­ly



Den­nis Maha­gin is a poet from the Pacif­ic Northwest.

His work appears wide­ly, in print and via the Web.

His lat­est col­lec­tion is enti­tled “Long­shot and Ghazal.”

The book is avail­able from Mojave Riv­er Press:
