Yes, I am a poet, as if the world needed another, right? Well, as you will discover (if you haven’t already), I am good at this craft.

I like to type on the computer or typewriter when I write (whatever meets my mood at the time).

I am honest and to the point, meaning I am not afraid to say what I think.

I like walks in the park and late night phone conversations.

I like to read Bukowski when I take a shit on the toilet and Rilke when it rains.

I know that there is a God, but I have serious doubts about organized Christian religion.

I am a Pisces, which means I am moody, emotional, and sensitive.

I like to drink vodka in the afternoon, but don’t call me a drunk, because I can out drink any of you little shits.

I am not athletic, but I exercise occasionally. I am a vegetarian.

I write to get this loud voice of poetry out of me and into words. Please… only the serious should read on. I am not interested in the boring, mundane, average or the needy. I am not attempting to be a hero, nor am I a role model. I am just a poet with an honest voice. I am awaiting your reaction to my poetry.
