This blog is my place to explore, to try new forms, new frequencies. All without a safety net. What you see here is hot out of my mind’s creative oven. Every poem is newly born, most times only minutes old. My nod to performance art.

One hundred and ninety-one poems since April 1, 2018.

Pantoum. Tanka. Haiku. Aubade. Elegy. My beloved free verse. And tonight, monostich.

Thanks for coming along on my grand experiment.




I poke my poems in the I, the better to see.
