Shock and pain hit Rusty’s body just as fast as his brain could process it.  Bone-jarring hits were nothing new to the demolition derby veteran, but direct hits to his driver’s door were out of the norm, not to mention illegal.  He looked to his left and saw the all-too-familiar black and green paint scheme of his rival, Parker.  He could clearly make out the stupid looking black, three-quarter helmet that Parker wore because he said it made him look like “The Intimidator.”  “Sure, and my butt hair looks like Richard Petty’s mustache,” was Rusty’s response.

So it turns out I’m a poet and didn’t even yada yada yada…

So I learned of a poetry project last month and was intrigued by the concept to say the least.  The idea, aptly named Project 411, was to take contributions from as many poets/writers as possible, and compile a 411 line poem to represent the 411 miles of free-flowing freedom that is the Wabash River, an Indiana geographic icon.  I whipped up my 5 best attempts at poetry and clicked on the submit button.

Well, the final product was released this week and I was excited to see my name listed in the participant’s section!  The finished poem is filled with truly inspiring words, so I strongly encourage you to check it out when you have a few minutes.  Make your guesses in the comments and see if you can single out my efforts!
