Biography of johnny case

I was born into a musical family and music has been the dominant factor in my life as long as I can recall. Yet the creative impulse itself has always been the driving force in my every endeavor, whether it is playing piano, painting in oils, or writing poetry and vignettes. To compose a poem is, for me, just another way of making music.

Carriage For Dream Words

Slumber lines sway baskets dropping omens stalking
Dark alleys into doorways of decay that flick ticks
And tocks from clocks, and slap still wristwatch hands...
Immobile stranded moment-in-time wears out the chair
In destiny's waiting room cloaked in linens discarded
By death, amorous always, plotting a tryst for each
Split second, leaving what's left further than ever with me...

[Hata Bildir]
