Ivan Jenson

Supermarket Superstar

discovered in a supermarket
shopping for
a new brush
and a candy bar
spotted by a scout
for the contours of
your amazing face
and promptly
signed to a contract
to appear
in an ad for
this has happened
but it is much
more likely
that you
will be lovingly
eyed by a stock boy
and never
even know it


Born in LA, Ivan Jenson was a prodigy in poetry and art. He moved to New York City where he received recognition and praise for his bold Pop Art. His Absolut Jenson painting was featured in Art News, Art in America, and he has sold several works at Christie's New York. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Word Riot, Hidden City Quarterly, Thoughtsmith, Viral Cat, Poetic Desperation, and Bread & Circuses, among others.
