valentine’s poems….

A Valentine. 

September leaves…. 

August moon…. 

July heat…. 

Weddings in June…. 

May flowers…. 

April’s ducks…. 

March winds blow…. 

February sucks…. 


I’ve bumped into Truth and talked to God. 

I’ve made Chaos my best friend. 

Passed Time with Fate while Confusion laughed 

and Society spoke of our end. 

But the first time I ran into Love, 

it was a special kind of pain. 

Like a searing, sweet cacophony, 

with a bitter, sharp refrain. 

I’ve know the type of Careless Love 

Dylan sings of in his songs. 

Reminiscent of an avalanche, 

‘cause it comes on swift and strong. 

I’ve felt the sweetness of a crush 

and the torture of Love’s tears. 

And even the nitemare relationships 

that left me with chilling fears. 

To fall into Love and never land 

is everyone’s greatest wish. 

To live in every tiny touch. 

To linger in each kiss. 

I once passed Love on a beaten path, 

and once on a darkened street. 

But the kind of Love I dream about, 

I have yet to ever meet. 

I’m sure I’ll know him at first glance, 

all smiles and old corduroys. 

I’ll know him the moment my heart stops, 

not by his face, just by his poise. 

And he’ll ask me champagne questions, 

and he’ll melt in with my dreams. 

Wanting only to live in the magic. 

Content to remain there with me.


Super Lennon.


His eyes change with smiles

and the hues of his clothes,

and just why he loves me

I guess only he knows.


His laugh is kinetic

throwing sparks in the air,

as he spins and he twists

like the curls of his hair.


My small super hero,

he saves every day,

with a grin and a giggle

in a moment of play.


I savor the second

he came into my world….


He may not always get candy,

but he does get the girl.

“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.
