Poems and such.

I have competed as a member of the 2013 Boston Poetry Slam/Cantab national team & the 2014 Lizard Lounge national team.

Sometimes I say, "I am not actually writing poetry, it is just something I am doing." I am being flip but I still think:

Poetry can be - just something you are doing. And I plan to post it here, when people are doing it.

If you see me out at a poetry slam in Cambridge MA, email me. I like talking to strangers - most of the time.

Unsettled heart. The fetishism of secrecy. These people understood - as I did - the back alleys of the soul, whispers and shadows, money slipping from hand to hand, the password, the code, the second self, all the hidden consolations that lifted life above the ordinary and made it worth living.
Donna Tartt
Mindlessness is the application of yesterday’s solutions to today’s problems. Mindfulness is attunement to today’s demands to avoid tomorrow’s difficulties.

I die fast in the city. Outside I die slow. Everywhere I am is just another thing without you in it.
