People who would chance to hear me read poetry can expect lyrical verse with modern day word play. I like to use wordy narratives that just seem to show up, sometimes they resolve, sometimes not.
In post bachelor school my concentration was on advanced philosophy, art and literature. I am a musician/songwriter who loves to free associate with academia, writing styles w/ Romanticism as a backdrop.
My favorite poets are Dylan Thomas, Shelley, Poe, e.e. cummings, Yeats and the early 20th century war poets.
I was chosen to be the graduate leader for a Dylan Thomas seminar in 2008 @ PSU, Honorary Mention Award - Alabama Poetry Society/Romantic poems-2001, Best Poems of 1990 Stanza Magazine Portland Oregon
I shared the stage and opened for Michael McClure/(Ray Manzerak on keys) and Michael C. Ford (I played guitar -he read)-(Both poets friends of Jim Morrison.)
