Gutter Eloquence Magazine publishes "You knew me before"

I've been in the gutter before. Not so eloquent. I've been in Gutter Eloquence Magazine four times before. I guess I'm still in the Gutter and this poem, You knew me before,  is about where I've come from.

A former girlfriend of mine (Maria McCarthy) and co-editor of The Heat City Literary Review, once pointed out that I held a knife and fork like a caveman. I never understood the subtleties of personal embarrassment, nor did I care back where I'd come from spiritually and emotionally. I found out it that it was important that people view you a certain way if you're using a steak knife the same way you cut a small branch of a tree.

For those that need help
