Throwing Them Back

Throw’em back

With a bottle of Jack

Drowning your memory

Hoping in time

You’ll get out of my mind

And finally set me free


Mike Dailey is a fairly well known poet in southeast North Carolina.  He lives near Sunset Beach with his wife of 50 years and the occasional visits with his daughter and two grandkids. His poems have been published in several magazines and anthologies.   He has had three books of poetry collections published; one based on cancer treatments he underwent, one based on his 30 years working as a civilian analyst for the US Army, and a book of spiritual poems.  He is always putting together several collections and looking for publishers. Mike’s poetry can be serious, topical, or very moving but he is known more for his rhythm and rhyme poetry with a twist of humor.
