why write?

I have to write what I hear in my head, what I dream in my sleep, what my bones ache to express.

My poems tell stories of strength, love, regret, disobedience, loss, hope, redemption, and whatever whispers to you.

dandy lion

This poem begins with a sense of hopelessness, but transforms to freedom and power.  Three stanzas of “dandy lion”:



this night
I know why
I dream
I cry

no wing
no eye
no control
I die

I raise
fluffed lace
catch my star’s
birthplace

I’m a faithful
pale whore
dandy lion
I roar
