My aim in the poems is to catch the reader in an erotics of sound, story, and feeling; the web that stretches between the poles of lyric and narrative.
I look for surprises, wait for them to leap up out of the quotidian, like fish breaking the surface of the poem at its ruptures of juxtaposition and metaphor.
We read the world through the lens of the body, and I try to ride its hungers, triumphs, joys, follies, wounds, even its decay.
So the soul evolves in its salt brine of words.
Most of the poems contained in this blog came to me before the images, which were then selected to complement the writing.
