Just words

In Bed

Draw circles
on her belly
with pen

She laughs
at how I

I am a
hairy furnace
She is
my cold purpose

She can have
most of
the blankets

I just need
her there
with goosebumps

giving me
a reason
to see how beautiful
a life can be

Silver Surf

somewhere new
someone new
and the waves
go crash and crash
under the San Simeon Moon
with silver reflections
on the surf
and California’s
constellations glimmering
in the sky

Heart break
seemed inevitable
as I watched her
visage smoke another smoke

so I threw old
stones into the ocean
knowing that “us” would end
but not this, not the surf and the moon with its projections

and the waves go crash and crash

Poem About Poems

The best poems
are heavy and obvious
There is no doubt
or lack of clarity in the words
There is just
pure honesty and connection

Everyone involved
rises above being alive
just for a moment

and then you notice
during the float
back down, that
you were in Shangri la


Hello there,

I have unfortunate news. I will make this short because I am not looking for sympathy, I just want to justify my lack of posts recently. I was traveling the American southwest and one day when I was in San Francisco my friends rental car was broken into and all of my stuff was with us because we were changing hostels that day. ALL of my stuff was stolen from the car which included my computer which included my writing, thus my lack of posting new things. I am writing new stuff and will continue to update this blog, I am just a little scattered at the moment while I get this next part of my life underway.

All the best,


Fresh and Free

A little bit drunk
And strolling
Through downtown
Is all I want to be
With a cigarette
And fresh haircut
Thinking about love
And having sex in the Grand Canyon
That red sand backdrop
The Melinnia all piled up

Hands in pockets
Look at the faces
With the bodies
Heading towards

I never want a something
Especially something
That requires my attendance

Horseshoe Bend

no god was ever
so communicative
as the rocks beneath
my fingertips

the voice of awe
speaks to me
in loud ocean tongues
and red rock outcrops

times image and perspective
is present in deserts,
waves, cliffs and peaks

no words or pictures
are needed. true
being plays out in
silence with nature

The Night Before Garbage Day

take out the full bag
and put in an empty.
walk to the curb
looking down the street.
empty intersection..
the other way
a drunk stumbles
alone arguing with his regrets
his gait suggests strong feelings of

time for bed.
sex with myself
finish then
twist and
turn in my sheets
listen to music
fall asleep
and finally retreat
to a limitless
world where
I do not feel
so confused
and the garbage
can never fills up

My Conversation Posture

I can barely concentrate on
what some people are saying.

I look at their eyes and think,
I have been looking at their eyes too long.

I cross and uncross my arms
lean against walls with
fist to hip
nodding with
what seems
according to
casual conversation

I’m an ape trapped in
his own observation.
a monkey staring in
the mirror
too aware of his own
fallible nature

the ugliness in you
is the ugliness in me
do they notice how I’m standing?

fist to hip
