Cosmic Hitchhiker Mama

I used to move around a lot thinking new places meant new beginnings. I came to realize it wasn't the location that needed changing; it was me.

About James Hold

"First you're an unknown, then you write one book and you move up to obscurity." — Martin Meyers

I published my first book in 2004. It became an immediate collector's item. I know this for a fact as I have several hundred copies collecting dust in my attic. Critics everywhere said it belonged right up there between Ernest Hemingway and Robert E Howard—on an alphabetical bookshelf.

My influences include Rocky & Bullwinkle, 1950s sci-fi movies, and silver-age comics.

I live in Texas with my Princess wife, and cats Rocky and Dusty. You can contact me at

About the Series: Skeletons From An Empty Closet
At some point in a writer's life he inevitably tries his hand at writing poetry. This usually occurs at an early age when he either hopes to impress an out-of-reach

girl or because he's fallen under the delusion that everything matters and he must contribute his two cents to the subject.

Those with sense file these efforts in a secret place and do not inflict them on the public. Others lack such humility.

If there is any value in exposing these undertakings, it's to show that everyone was young once, and that beauty, truth, and meaning are to be found in the eye (rather than the mind) of the beholder.

Someone asked why a lot of these things have "Mama" in the title. It comes from a Ten Years After song called "Choo Choo Mama." It sounded cool so I started using it also.

This is a fun poem. The theme should be recognizable to everyone.

A great one, its like indirectly being told 'you can never be another person' as well as one way of saying 'never forget where you come from" As well as another way of saying 'things around you can never change if you don't change yourself' All positivity in this one. Loved it.
