I wrote 3 poems in 1987

I began the year 1987 with three poems. In an attempt to "catch up" I wrote the poem for the previous year, the poem for the current year, and an ironic "celibation" celebration poem decrying my sexual state at the time. The later part of the year would find my getting fired from my job as a manager for Target stores, and soon I would be changing careers. The stresses at the job, then the loss of it, did not prove to be very poetic subjects, but did stimulate my video production at the time with the MikeVideo "Sacked"
