I believe in Synchronicity. You are here for a reason. I am glad the universe has brought us together. There are several things you should know before proceeding. One is that I am a non-traditional poet... more free form. Second is that I like this AWESOME thing called "The DIRTY line." It's that one or two lines in a poem that really strikes you for good or ill. Please let me know which ones you like amongst my poetry. Third is that I have created several forms of my own kind of poetry. One is called "Schizophrenic poetry", which is a series of shorthand notation for things that have happened in my life during the week. It is a compilation of quotes and short poetic verses. The second form of poetry I created is called "(BS)" poetry... it's ONLY function is to make the reader say or feel the following sentiment "Wow...ooooooo... that was cool!" It is created from an algorithm I created after attending a poetry workshop. If you want to know HOW I came up with it, you'll just have to comment on the feedback section and leave me your email. The third form of poetry is called "Bouncing" where I take dirty lines from other poets and do a call and response to create a whole new poem. I like to think that my poetry is not "safe" poetry. The reason I say that is because you can't just read it and not have to look at yourself , or answer the rhetorical questions you find within. I'm here to affect the world, and I mean business! But in a loving way. Enjoy!
