I Love You Like a Leading Lady Loves Steve Martin

I’d like to tell you how I feel,
but It’s Complicated.
I know I’m quite The Jerk
for all I’ve overstated.

stitching up dreams.

If you knew the girl I am,
if you knew All of Me,
but like a Man With Two Brains
you’re too smart to see.

If I had Three Amigos
you’d be my favorite friend.
If you were a Spanish Prisoner
I’d break you out and then,
we’d have ourselves a Big Year
and name our dog Roxanne.
We’d live an L.A. Story
when you aren’t with the band.

I’ve heard, “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid.”
Who knows if that’s true.
But you are not a Lonely Guy….
my heart belongs to you.

A Valentine

left my heart behind.

September leaves….
August moon….
July heat….
Weddings in June….
May flowers….
April’s ducks….
March winds blow….
February sucks….

“Barbie Angell Uncensored” is a dazzling fusion
of poetry, comedy and tragedy

ASHEVILLE NC – Poet, playwright and raconteur Barbie Angell performs “Barbie Angell Uncensored: An Unfiltered, Uninhibited and Unapologetic Event” at 8pm Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at LaZoom Bar & Gorilla. The 90-minute show is a melange of works spanning Angell’s career, including her poetry, excerpts from her autobiographical play “Death by Sparkle,” pieces from her children’s book “Roasting Questions,” and rarely performed mature works.

A multitalented, multi-hyphenate personality based in Asheville since 1999, the always colorful Angell is recognized around town for her work as a poet, playwright, columnist, emcee, artist and fashion designer. She has been voted “Best of WNC” poet by Mountain XPress readers for 10 consecutive years, and her skills as an emcee have made her a sought-after host for local festivals and large events such as Planned Parenthood’s Condom Couture and the Reproductive Rights Rally. 

Angell has written sketch comedy, co-authored “The Kids Show: Definitely Not for Kids,” and penned one act of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” for Montford Park Player. She is currently creating and selling upcycled clothing in her own fun and funky signature style – some of which will be available for sale at the event, along with original artwork and prints.

Equal parts stand-up comedy, poetry slam and public confession booth, “Barbie Angell Uncensored” promises to be emotional, unsettling, hilarious, and as unique as Barbie Angell herself!

Tickets are available at for a suggested donation of $20.
