About the Author
Joe Bogle is a fiction writer living in New Jersey. He is recently published in a couple literary journals and is currently seeking publication for a novel, a book of poems, and a book of short fiction. When he is not writing, you can often find him at any local playground, hanging from the monkey bars, with a child in each arm. He is an avid believer in fresh air, and hopes that his writing will not only intrigue but force his writers to read between the lines.
A poem by Joe Bogle
Seemingly sincere, but never honest, I try to forget
Sure I forgive,
The ruby crushed cream, the sky’s tint on the only blue sea
The blonde skin stricken with sun, toe nails in lace.
You are near. Never as close as you are in my dreams.
I do forgive, but I fear,
Halfheartedly hopeful, never sure, I try
Yes, but why?
