About J. Carl Brooksby
As of this writing, I am 82 years old. I didn’t start writing poetry until four or five years ago. (Until then, I guess I just didn’t have it in me.) As you can see, I only write poems about myself. Maybe when I get older, I will be inspired to write some deep philosophical poem to inspire you. At least, as I get more and more health problems I will have more and more poems to write.
Update April 2006: Two of my poems, “Lonesome” and “Gatherin’ Desert Shrimp” are now featured on cowboypoetry.com. Check it out there.
Update January 2014: I am now 90 years old. I just added my latest poem, “My Summer of Leisure” about VerDon’s summer in the hospitals in 2013.
Update February 2015: I am now 91, and just posted my latest poem, “My Nose Job.” Audio recordings of many of my poems are here, until we can find a better place for them.
