Hello everyone! Recently, I (Matt) received an email from a poet named Colin James. He asked if I would be interested in posting a few of his poems on the site, since they have elements of both religion and pop culture in them.

Please take a read and let me know what you think in the comments section below. Also, check out the link to Colin’s books. Enjoy!

and had excellent posture.
Colin James has a book of poems, Resisting Probability, from
