threads could choke retread

pearl in shell dissection edict

platitude and essence of youth

meat in the middle sectional

curdled coy puncturing sigh

mint charisma sick unscented

tastes like karma thickened

whipped methods to sad eyes

heaven succumbs knife swings

hope stings delicious deeds

age appropriate mantra purse

bait swords laid legs coital

prayed eggs murk sunshine

alters revocation shade songs

pilfer long the codes entreat

tang lost trusted solitude

skipping sinuous finishing

none model such pristine

carve late to class act prism

sake foreclosure empty nest

quiet standing room sideways

head plastic in praising black

half slacked marvel posture

leave sacks coiled in baths

safety boiling preemptive heat

feelers stick to tryst denied

treads revealed invoke red.

After several honors English classes and more obsessive reading of Madeleine L'Engle and Stephen King, I knew writing was a calling. In the 80's I was also enamored with electronic bands Depeche Mode and Front 242 and seminal bands like Skinny Puppy and Click Click which influenced my writing as well. In the 90's I was transformed when I discovered Clive Barker, he was the total package. Artist, Painter, Sculptor, Writer, Poet, Director...I became a survivalist writer. A term I coined by the nature of writing through feeling...letting go of the negative and hurt. Which if you are a poet, is what you do. It's not all just about creative churning. It's letting out what you feel inside of you. I continue to write poetry, short stories and lyrics to survive...
