Bio (auto)

I have have been writing poetry for over 20 years and recently began to push it out to the public through journals, websites and my first collection of published poems (targeted to completion by the end of 2011). I am originally from Upstate New York and hold an MA in History from the University of Connecticut. I have lived in Brussels, Belgium since 1998 which write and work as a professional services consultant.

Amuse

A skyline subsumed by Pacific fog

Rain bombards the exposed city streets below

— fish guts, vegetables and unwanted toys

…………………….…………./float

To the gutter

A sea lion named Hybridity surfaces from the bay
With a lightening bolt in it’s mouth

[sign language]

“Let’s have a barbeque”

And forget this poem.
