For the longest time, life was made up of 33% chaos and 67% flying by the seat of my pants. The feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop loomed like a suspicious shadow played on rotation on my radio station a favorite top 40 jam i couldn’t turn off or understand Through all…

You’ll Find Me In the Bathroom, Gambling with Time

I hate apps The notifications The email reminders I am sick From not writing But a blogging isn’t quite the same It’s tied to the instant gratification Of likes. Of stars. Of comments. I’ll write what you wanna read But I’d rather Write the book I wanna read On the other hand I want to…

“Your Place in the World”

I downloaded this app. It’s basically poetry to pics, about life. Pretty interesting. It cost a dollar or two but I’m a poet and we are all down for each other. (I guess?) Let’s be honest, my life is based on a string of impulses. Just by clicking “Buy Now” my brain shoots off a…
