Poems and such.

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

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.

he weeps and the sky
is ripped at the belly.

This is a dangerous thing to do. People pick up on one little thing you say and never let go.

For real. And it has to change.

Please, Lord, don’t make me have to be interesting today.
