I Didn’t Mean It by Robert Ragan


Am I so terrible
Such a standoffish person

That other writers feel the need to bring loaded pistols to a poetry reading

I say tons of things they find offensive

But on the mic when I read about sticking up the coffeehouse

And robbing fellow poets

It was strictly for shock value
I honestly thought they would laugh

Just another case where I went too far
Further alienating myself from my peers

At this point I don’t see myself as a poet or writer of any kind

I’m just a mentally unstable person who writes down all my bad thoughts on paper

Then calls it art

Facebook Page Poetry Submissions


We have decided to start publishing single poems on our Facebook page! Send 1 – 3 pieces, previously unpublished, to our team at cajunmuttpress@gmail.com for consideration. Put your name and Poetry Submission in the title of the email. Paste all poems and bios in the body of the email or in docs, we’d prefer if you just copy and paste them into the message, but whatever works for you. And we want the gritty outlaw poetry! Not the squishy stuff! Hell, even send some erotica too if you have it! Twice a week we will pick one poem to publish and notify the poet via email response to their submission. Also, please send a short bio and a photograph of yourself to accompany your piece. Anticipating some excellent reads!
