Welcome to MEET THE POET WEDNESDAYS. Each week we highlight one of the talented poets who contribute to our community. This week's poet is A.B. Thomas!
Will you tell us a bit about yourself?
Howdy, I’m A.B. Thomas, a forty one turning five year old from Central Alberta, Canada. I’ve been on top of the world and I’ve been in the gutters; now I’m somewhere in the middle. I’ve worn many a hat over the years; started out in the oil field, tried the sex, drugs and rocknroll thing, went and got all educated in education, rehabilitation and psychology only to become disappointed in the fact that the social and educational systems are not about developing potential but focused primarily on fitting people into generic blocks of descriptions, then went back to construction to an oil field supply company where I’m currently working. At night the pent up twistedness comes out and it either turns into poetry, a short story or an article for Subversify.com, whom I’m totally convinced publishes my material because of some level of pity.
