A (wise) man of two faces
Musings, commentary, and the occasional parade of novelty.

Updates Monday - Friday


Friend, go with grace
and a smile on your face.
I’ll stay at the side
of your children and bride
and guard them in your place.


What is fantasy?
Is it the little white lies
that still let us dream?

God and The Devil

Brave and true
Praying, slaying, saving
The Coin’s other side
Preying, slaying, slaving
Twisted and perverse

Non fiction

What’s reality?
Hard lines and cutting edges
and the scars they leave?

Book 3 published!

Today I am pleased to announce that my third book “2011:¬† The Year I was in Love” is now available for sale.

This is the first book I’ve fully produced¬† - from writing, editing, and formatting the book and ebook to designing the cover.

If you would like to purchase a copy, paperback are available from CreateSpace here, from Amazon here, and the Kindle version is available here.


Dirt under his nails
Crisscrossed scars, old and faded
A man’s calluses.


I wish you death and despair,
ill health and no hair;
I pray that this hex
withers even your sex
and breaks you beyond repair.

The long, hard job

Sunrise to sunset,
I walk out that door and I
return when work’s done.

The measure of words

Short and sweet
Rhyming, timing, symbolizing
Still words run deep
Narrating, describing, climaxing
Rich and full


Working on the lines,
it’s just another day of
working on the lines.

To the death

I have loved and lost,
and buried my heart so I
would not love again.


The storm and the song
carry me along
through war and strife
this tumultuous life
to where I belong.


Take care whom you hold.
Unworthy arms will never
treat you with respect.

The Eye of the Storm

All of the noise
from the girls and boys
makes me crawl in my skin;
their damnable din
challenges my poise.

Close to our heart

The words that hurt most
come from the mouths of those whom
we most desire praise.
