Brian Jaeger Named Jacksonville, Florida, Poet Laureate

I know, you're not really supposed to give yourself titles, but it's a way to get your name out there. Like if you were the King of Used Cars something like that. Since no one else seems to have claimed the title of Jacksonville, Florida, Poet Laureate, I'll take it. Thanks.


No, I'm not trying to claim I am Florida's Poet Laureate. That's appointed by the state, and I don't want the governor to come after me. And if someone else has claim to the Jax post, let me know, and I'll renounce my self-appointment. Then I could be the East Arlington Poet Laureate. I'm not sure if I have to give up the title in Lenexa from last year or not.

Anyhow, you're probably wondering if I can actually write poetry. I can and I do. Here's a link to some of my poems. Look for me on Amazon, too. I'm new here, so I have not assessed the poetry scene, and I'm kind of focusing on writing songs with a friend right now, so we'll see how productive I am. But I still claim the title, anyhow.
