XJ Kennedy's verses are fun. Sometimes leaning towards sardonic, but always with a eye to the humor in a situation. Maybe because he also writes for children, he's held onto a playfulness with language and imagery that pulls me in.
This poem, for example, has a man imagining himself as a dog and plays with that metaphorical dog of a man who won't commit and marry.
It's a silly idea, but the punny language and imagery is appealing.
When I want to look on the lighter side, I turn to XJ Kennedy.
