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.

The following poem is in my chapbook, Naked
 published by The Main Street Rag Publishing Company:

Book cover by artist, Ebeth Scott Sinclair


silver lined

 

I belong to another world

shrouded by clouds

 

collide with the walls of my maze

forced to change direction

 

want to disappear today

away from my Judas

 

what I’ve done strikes my face

like rocks thrown from truck tires into a windshield

 

thirty-some years

thirty pieces of silver
