My nerves in perpetual motion
Born in Toronto, Ontario. University Degree (B.Sc.) in Environmental Science with Dean’s List Honours. Have lived hard and have not died young, mostly because I don’t live hard any more. First published at 39 and since then have been published in various journals and and anthologies in Canada, the USA, and Sweden. l love the written word, especially in the vein of Leonard Cohen, some other very good Canadian writers, and and Charles Bukowski but do not try to emulate them and am pretty sure it is visa versa. Recently Daniel established a press, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada, dedicate to the publishing of poetry & prose. www.bordertownpress.com

On the Train
My train went past
And from this distance
It has been a while now
Taking us away or to
In this comfortable darkness
Strings from forward and behind
And this constant motor hum
And tonight bus driver,
