Started writing years ago as a lyricist & gradually moved toward poetry, stories & screenplays. Majority deal with the underbelly of life. Soon I will post some poetry with more humor & some intentionally surreal & experimental to see what reaction I get. Darkness comes in different shades & so are the words I choose. I like taking guests briefly into another world where they can wear someone else's clothes and walk in their shoes. We need to know about other lives -- so we can better understand why people do what they do & believe what they believe.
