Poetry In Plain Sight - Frank Mundo

I have to struggle to write. I can come up with ideas a plenty. I can write but I have to draw up from the depths. To write and tell the story solid takes a willingness to bust secrets and make them irrefutable.

In Frank Mundo's The Brubury Tales there is a path to the people and places we know and file away. Frank doesn't allow the memories to get filed. In this piece called Holiday Inn there are memories and feelings from security guards that are trying to win vacation time.

Psst: I got a new camcorder that records in high definition. If you are choking on bandwidth issues click the HD to have it downshift to standard definition.


  1. if u struggle, perhaps u need to take a break, or fall in love. do something drastic. experience something new

  2. Ah yes, but the struggle is part of the process. Some writing comes to you ready to be written, other stuff you have to go and follow the trail.

    There are times when you have to live and learn from the old as well as seek the new.

    You have to be willing to remember the unpleasant.

    But hey, I'm open to meeting a quality dude.
