I'm a bit eclectic in the free verse sense, experimenting with sounds that employ light alliteration, assonance and some rhyme where it fits. My tastes can vary, but I will look for expertise as well as unique themes built around a single metaphor with words/imagery that compliment. Just surprise me.

Examples of what I write (not necessarily what I like) found here:
