My poetry is an expression and an extrapolation on my thoughts and feelings. Chuck Palahniuk said all art is an x-ray, but like any data, it is subject to interpretation.
So, it is not a torrent of obsession, more a process where I speak when the need arises. I edit and craft them, but it is a balance between ensuring the raw emotion and images are there but also wanting to share something with a sense of craft to it.
I write every day, and most of it goes unseen, usually as part of whatever long form projects I have going on.
There’s wealth in poetry, but not money.
If I’ve made you feel something, then my work is done.
But if you’re feeling something, then you have a chance to reward me for your entertainment.
So, sometimes I shake the hat, not often but I believe in my worth and work.
So, I put down the pen and offer the battered hat.
Also, if you liked any of these, share them with your friends and followers.

So, thank you for reading and feeling my work.
