Just words

My second book is available!


After a couple years of slowly chipping away, I have released this collection of poems into the wild. Some selections you may have read on here in the past. Some you may have not. Either way, I have condensed the last decade into this attractive little package.

If you are not interested in the book but have been wondering what I have been working on, you can check out my podcast at

A New Episode is Here

A Newfoundland conversation. Strange things have been taking place on this foggy island for hundreds of years. In this episode I sit down with former Folklore Professor Dr. Philip Hiscock to discuss some of these happenings and their origins.

Your Silent

The sorrow of each man is drenched with introspection
subjectiveness is the quality of pain
which we can never see
and to each individual
the avalanche is real
even if it looks like a snowflake
in the monotony
we are crushed and
brought back to life
by the best thoughts we can conjure
if we are lucky
the mind contorts
trying to rescue itself
from a private execution
the brain twisting its spine
trying adamantly
to squirm out of its situation
fighting against its
biggest opponent
sometimes succeeding
and then we grow stronger for having done so
god bless those who have done so
but often
the plate breaks
ceramic on stone
stranded and alone
so the individual must sweep
up the pieces
and form a new vase
one for holding expired flowers
but flowers none the less


In this weeks episode of the podcast I sit down with Artist – Richard Tetrault. Richard is a painter, muralist and print maker. He is also and awesome dude and conversationalist. I am getting a lot of positive feedback on this one. I hope you enjoy as well!

The Heat

Language such a crude tool
for describing the body's 
bent song
Where does the heat in my
heart originate
Where does the firewood come 
from and who is chopping it
My lungs
two caverns that
I insist on choking with
smoke and smoke and smoke
All of the worlds noise
bouncing off my pupils
unrelenting and I let a lot of 
it in All these thoughts laid
out like a map written in some
alien script And as I
go along some words are
revealed to me
the glass on the compass becomes
less foggy Torn between two
one production
the other 
a sorry but glorious destruction
but I know neither is right and 
like a retired magician
my tricks are becoming harder
to fake
so I go on
shoes velcroed tight
and my perception of time
constantly swinging from vine
to vine
where does the heat come from?
The thought of having a 
soul is comforting
but comfort doesn't make 
for an interesting life.
