Half Drunk Muse Poetry


Greg Rayborn

Greg Rayborn

Greg Rayborn is a 46 year old father and grandfather from Kentucky. After an 18 year hiatus, he is writing again. He reckons it’s about time. He offers this recent comment on his work: “a baring of the soul in the most uncomplicated and unguarded moment.” Greg blushes then laughs. He considers his writing as simple, a mere bleeding onto a page. As a memorial he dedicates this poem, “Changes,” to his “precious rose,” Kyleigh Ashtyn Drury. (Your momma says you’re watching, I hope you’re smiling. I love you. Papa) Greg’s recent published poems appear in Scorched Earth Publications, Rock Salt Plum, Ascent and Erosha.
