Tim Tipton
April 2015



art by the feral artist

    Tim Tipton was first seduced by the craft of poetry when he read the "Panther" by Rainier Marie Rilke. He has written poetry that has been featured in ART/LIFE, Askew, The San Gabriel Valley Poetry Quarterly, and the on-line journal poeticdiversity. Tim is a graduate of California State University of Northridge where he received a Bachelor of Science in Sociology. He also received a degree in Substance Abuse counseling.



The Pea Coat

Arranging the lost closet of clothes
you will no longer wear.
I come to find that old pea coat of yours.
The one you wore all the time like a suit of armor.
I took the coat to my nose.
This gesture endeared me to you absolutely.
In this visual world,
this modern landscape of polyester,
cotton, nylon, and pigment,
it is the smell inside this damn coat
that almost holds what's left of you.
