David Sklar

Where Poetry Comes From

I've got a deal with the Devil:
he doesn't get my soul;
I invite him over for dinner
once in a while
and he tells me stories.

Some artists take their industries by storm. David Sklar's career more closely resembles an ill-conceived siege wherein he misestimated who'd starve first. Nevertheless, he's had oddments accepted by Strange Horizons, Paterson Literary Review, Ladybug, and others. "Where Poetry Comes From" was once a poster at Seattle's Bumbershoot Arts Festival.
