Richard J Lamoureux What is Wise Dummy Poet?

Wise Dummy Poet is the creative brainchild of Richard Lamoureux. This book flows from his personal experiences. Some of the poems and prose are written about actual people, other poems are his artistic interpretation to express a mood or idea.

Cataclysmic dual explosions as we grind...
