throats cut hopes up evening faith
blood torn gifts clean writhe or hate
mildew beads uneven screams late
monolithic mayhem shaving fate

red fluid dead druid an order lust
predators sanctified scaled in rust
fornicated filaments in meaty dust
raping methods coy ruiner must

four by seven score blacklist feast
marks over hollowing out a beast
plaque boil cruel befall deceased
melee improper cut three at least

bait lines by nines to score away
dead ladders fling scythes delay
arachnid patter thrust and flay
scrape knee births fatalistic day

filament arc bent arduous sky
tepid limbs coiled even in the lye
pressed violins trace nights to die
breaths heave ho the last to cry

It was early elementary school when I discovered Robert Frost and his pen struck me. I was wanting to be in the worlds he painted. 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...
