i had a dream that i saw Ambition in a wheelchair
paralyzed & slumped over...
& some smiling bum was skipping around
handing out trophies for all the things
in our lives at which we miserably failed...
& some one-toothed hobo was pinning medals
upon the tattered shirts of those brave enough
to have a long line of things they never even began...
& some howling madman w/a gown & tassel was handing out
honorary degrees in Inertia to all that were well-practiced
in the art of resignation...
This blog is updated irregularly and has nothing to do with the poet's output. The poet is actually disturbingly prolific. He writes about 5 poems per day. The pages are everywhere, even stacked in the bathtub.

- give me the one-way chute
- when it's yr every third thought it makes you yawn...
- one day yr bones will tap you on the shoulder
- sink in the fangs
- all my life i've given nods to nothingness
- one finger unsalute
- manure & the other side
- give me a one-way chute
- my moments are a string of piss stained empty cups...
- the same song forever
- ironically it's the only thing holding it up
- in the hands of the clock
- no voltage in the soul
- my definition of hope
- today the void is a pearl
- mightily & voluntarily
- the middle man will break yr heart everytime
- the unamerican dream
- tonight i cannot recall
- where i live now
- primarily a scar
- the myth of the blood red tattoo
- if only they could see my insides they'd run
- gradually you realize there's a dead dog strapped ...
- once a lovely hole to wholeness
- madly dancing in the furnace
- the grass & the children are green
