My Poetry

First of all, pat yourself on the back and buy yourself a beer for clicking on this section. Appreciation of poetry is a dying animal. Those of you who clicked on this page by accident…well, dumb luck counts too!

I will feature some of my poetry and try not to put you all to sleep. I would rather be kissing someone just like you would, but since I can’t, I have words to spit and swallow.

I have two books of self-published poetry: Throwing Grapes at Bravados and Fuel for Any Bonfire. I have four self-published chapbooks: Woman Swallowed by the EarthHow to Put  a Pet Rock to Sleep, Four O’clock in Dog Years, and The Black Chamber.

  1. excellent, as good or better than anything out there – Tina Fey watch out. Keep it up, compile them, and shop them around to regular publishers. In future, keep in mind copyrights and rights to use the pictures (and where to find them in event of print publication. I’m talking about the blogs – I seem to be in the poetry section

    1. Thanks for your encouragement. Yes, the pics right now are borrowed at times. I dont make any money from these blogs. I will have to consider taking my own all the time if I ever make this a money venture. The aesthetics of the website itself is blahhh but down the road, maybe I will fu fu it up.
