In Residence

 I reside in Perryville.

But for making notes, I'd be very still.

For I am there, making notes right now; 

not still. Self-will and words allow

that, at this time, you read what's written

 by such as me, a true nitwit smitten; 

who puts on screen this stuff to read

for whoever may feel a true nitwit need.

I'm not very clever, nor truly that smart.

My IQ, when measured, falls right off the chart, 

and leaves me confused, so I use what I know 

to do what I can, then some dumb doesn’t show.

Any peace of mind I may find, here or there,

is posed in the prose and the poems I share,

so if I've a gift for portraying my presence

in rhymes, then these represent my quintessence.
