You've Got Mail

Ephemera through the ether.

In box ghosts
In god we trust
Picture from forgotten toasts
Friendships cyclical, boom or bust

One, two, three, four
Boldface type between the junk
Plaintive missives to ignore
Memories stored within a trunk

Contributor Biographies

First poetry reading of the Dharma Bums of Barra de Navidad in January, 2010.

Without the generosity and talent of the amazing writers that have allowed their work to be shared within our community there would be no Bar None Group. Our contributors are listed within one of two groups.

The first group — The Dharma Bums of Barra de Navidad — are those writers and artists with a connection to the Costalegre region of Mexico. The kindred spirits who have contributed to the Bar None anthologies.

Existential One-Liners

Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom.

I never encounter anything except my own responsibility
When you have chosen not to make a choice you have made your choice
Choose — You are free
Freedom is nothing more than a choice that creates opportunities
Man is condemned to be free
