A Promissory Reincarnation

Illustration & Poem by Bob McNeil

Next life,

I’ll screw up

even better

than the way

I did

during this one.

I mean a Titanic,

Hindenburg,

Chernobyl

Nuclear Reactor,

and Exxon Valdez

oil spill

combined

in a trimester

mess up.

You’ll see,

next life.

A Rebel with Pistils


Bob McNeil, writer, editor, cartoonist, and spoken word artist, is the author of Verses of Realness. Hal Sirowitz, a former Queens, NY Poet Laureate, called the book “a fantastic trip through the mind of a poet who doesn’t flinch at the truth.” Among Bob’s recent accomplishments, he found working on Lyrics of Mature Hearts to be a humbling experience because of the anthology’s talented contributors. Copies of that collection are available here.

Also, Bob feels the queering of the media is on par with the civil rights movement of yore. And similar to Martin Luther King, another generation of enlightened people have a dream. He hopes the new wave of LGBTQ+ warriors make that dream of equality and freedom come to fruition.
