Brandon Whitehead

Brandon Whitehead is a writer, poet, critic and pizza-lover with (not surprisingly) a long career in manual labor, including most anything to do with trucks, warehouses and graveyard maintenance. As a rather surly member of the literary community in Kansas City, Missouri, Brandon has occasionally emerged to perform at Prospero's Pit Poetry or The Writer's Place in historic and well-kept Midtown Kansas City, and been published in several local publications of which he has not, frankly, kept very good records.

and that most important
“It’s just the way things have too be.”

a faithful home to 39th St.'s
shaggy, hung-over moths
and tripped-out hippie spiders
