Sometime humorous, sometimes reflective, but always thought-provoking, the collection of poems in You Write Really Well...for a Bowler! reflect that the stereotype of "dumb jocks" is merely that....a stereotype. Part autobiographical, part imagination, Michael P. Halwe experiences the highs and low of daily life and those moments that make us who we are. Halwe was called a "renaissance man" by those who knew him. He performed on stage in plays and as a solo vocalist in classical music, played in rock cover bands in the '70s, became a professional bowler at age 25 and spent seven years bowling in the PBA, received his B.A. in Psychology at age 38, and worked in the bowling industry for 30 years. He started writing poetry his "first time" in college because he had trouble passing English Composition; "I can't write a paragraph, and I think in sentence fragments." He lived in St. Charles, Missouri, until his death in 2008. This volume contains the poetry that was known to exist before his death.
