I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

It’s National Poetry Month in the U.S. and Canada. Don’t be afraid! I haven’t gone wall-to-wall verse here yet! I actually don’t have a whole lot planned yet that’s poetry-related. You’d think I wouldn’t be surprised by the arrival of … Continue reading
I was hoping to do more to observe National Poetry Month than haiku, but never managed to write anything new. Just to get something in before the month ends, I’ll present some of the haiku that I’ve written and posted … Continue reading
Sharing one of my favorite poems for National Poetry Month… Detroit’s Metro Times printed a poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti sometime in the early 1990s. It’s “#15” from his famous book A Coney Island of the Mind: Poems (New Directions Publishing … Continue reading
