Fourteen of Michael's poems have been published in The Devil's Wine, edited by Tom Piccirilli for Cemetery Dance Publications. Among the reprints are the classic "To a Chimp Held Captive for Purposes of Research" and "Philip K. Dick is Dead, A Lass." New poems include "Come to My House for Chili: A Rant" and the five Owl poems as written by "Susannah Huckaby, Age 12" from Mike's unpublished novel An Owl at the Crucifixion. Unfortunately, a typesetting error in the last Owl poem greatly diminishes the author's intentions. Someone reading Mike's introduction would probably be scratching their head wondering what Mike meant by a shape poem.
