Artisanal Gibberish II: Yet More Gibberish

Matthew Legare

Man vs. Poetry: The struggle continues.

Wherein the author continues his struggle with the written word in this new volume of what some might call "poetry" … if they had low standards. You will find contained within further musings on such random topics as chickens, lumberjacks, parrots, planks, rental lodging, and how to die convincingly on stage.

Compiled (or maybe "accreted" is a better word) over the course of several years, Artisanal Gibberish II: Yet More Gibberish is the culmination of six years of University and a lifetime of experiences.

CAUTION: We advise against drinking anything hot while reading these poems, to avoid nasal scalding.

About The Author

Matthew Legare

Matthew Legare

Matthew Legare is what happens when you tell someone they can be anything they want to be — but provide no further guidance. A performer and creator of “stuff” since he was able to stand upright, he can check off the boxes for “actor”, “writer”, “director”, “renter of fishing boats”, “painter of bathrooms”, “wrangler of technology”, and a number of other jobs which look good in an author’s biography.

Unable to stop making stuff up (he’s tried; we checked), Matthew is credited (or blamed) with a number of radio plays and spoken-word performances, as well as being “Tobias the Adequate” at fairs, festivals, and themed gatherings.  Since so many people responded to “I’m a magician.” with “Oh? What instrument do you play?”, Mr. Legare has branched into geeky, nerdy, goofy music with his “Troubadork” show, streaming regularly and coming to the aforementioned gatherings.

Matthew lives in an undisclosed location in San Antonio, Texas, with his extremely patient and supportive partner, Ami, and somewhere between zero and too many cats.
