Nice to see you.




I grew up rural working class. Much of my work is raw and from experience.
Many stories and poems published worldwide.

2014 Pushcart Prize nominee. (more)


''They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes,
Within a dream.''

I don’t want


Want or do not

I don’t want anyone to see
I don’t want anyone to hear
Sometimes I don’t want anyone
Sometimes I need so profoundly
It pains me to admit.

I feel somehow swindled
Without observing all the steps
Of the deception

The embarrassment is mine to own
One of several possessions
I’d rather wished they’d taken.






...and um, yeah, maybe i looked like that at 23, so no... not me...

  1. Haha, I never looked like that - not even in female form.
    I always tell you how human your writing is. You have a way of writing through your unique challenges in a way that universalizes (nor sure if that's a word, but there's no red squiggly, so I guess it works) the human condition.
    Love you, friend.

  2. Short but good, it could apply to so many situations in life. that second para in particular is often how I feel about life, thinking, did I miss a step somewhere?
