I was born in Louisiana but I've spent most of my life in Texas, particularly in San Antonio where I met my wife and raised my family.
My work has appeared in anthologies and in print and online journals including The Shine Journal, The Mindful Word, Right Hand Pointing, and others. I am the past winer of the Tempie-Skerritt-Hickman Award and the San Antonio Poetry Fair Award. I recently won the 'On Fire' on line poetry contest in Bangalore, India.
I am a member of the Sun Poets Society in San Antonio.
I walk along a melancholy strand,
Hearing music played too far
To be meant for me.
Drifting down the beach,
Ah Jesus! You do me no favors!
You give me life, but not my life!
You raise me up, what am I to do?
You are borne away with the crowd,
We tell ourselves that it will come.
It will descend upon us
While we are busy
Or simply laying about,
Here I am in the last scene of that last act.
This how you wanted it, right?
You got your crucifixion
