After watching this video on Jim Brock's blog of actress Sally Kirkland reading her poetry (check out the outfit), it reminded me of other celebrities who feel the need to publish their poetry.
If you know of celebs who write and/or publish poetry, add to the list. All of these links are to Amazon.com in case you would like to see the book covers ... or purchase copies -- whatever floats your boat.
A Night Without Armour, Jewel (singer)
The Lords and the New Creatures, Jim Morrison (singer, deceased)
The Forest of Love: A Love Story in Blank Verse, Jack Palance (actor, deceased). I have an autographed copy of this book--got it as a gag gift.
Touch Me, Suzanne Sommers (acrtress)
Yesterday I Saw the Sun: Poems, Ally Sheedy (actress)
Always a Reckoning and Other Poems, President Jimmy Carter. Actually, Carter's poetry is pretty good so I really don't consider him in the same category as the others.
Blinking with Fists: Poems, Billy Corgan (singer)
