I Write, therefore I Am

I love the way she holds the glass

even the brick walls glow

when she glides smiling

reflections so seductive

eyes sipping

each and every moment

passing before us

like a intimate stranger

oblivious to the flight.

“To work on a piece of writing by someone so enormously talented is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. It is probably the single hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. It is much more of a behemoth than I ever imagined it would be. It is literally like getting in a boxing ring every single night.”
— Gillian Anderson, London Evening Standard, July 2014 (x)

I am honored to announce my ode to Maya Angelou has been included in this month’s issue of the UK webzine The Lake. I am proud to represent Antiochians, my fellow Pali’s, Monrovians, Angelinos and American poets everywhere in this fine literary publication, across the pond.

Not a perfect day
turning up my boombox
of sadness, walking down
5th avenue, every Street
Hassle lyric oozes your name
from every corner, my rock
and roll heart you would
rip my soul with riffs
and then tear these holes apart
with rhythms from your bells
ringing your understated rhymes;
How I miss your Hudson
River Wind meditations
only my dark thoughts could
understand; even the gutters,
high rises and exhaust fume
symphonies know it,
without my favorite poet,

NYC has become a wordless
wasteland; as I spray paint
my message on this mailbox
hope you feel it passed
the satellites, Lou Reed,
I Love You. I’m still waiting
for my man.
