This is the personal web site of Joe Kaczmarek. Here you can read my poetry, jokes I’ve collected, my daily blurbs of thought, or my older (and longer) thoughts and writings.

In this site you can also download desktops I’ve created, visit an archive of old homepages for this site, or see some poetry artwork—graphical artwork based on some of my poems.

Quote of the Moment

Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

- William Shakespeare
Macbeth (5.5)
