I am a mental health worker,43, from an upper-middle-class, Republican family. Not the makings of much creatively. But my main weakness is my main strength - I've been mentally ill for twenty years, and I've seen the black sludge at the bottom of the Gutbucket Pond in winter, so there's a little creative fodder there. Still, I generally like to write things that might give the reader a little smile.

reflects the sunlight

How She Got The Blues

my one time brown-eyed girl.
She looked like she’d hit the pavement,
I guess like the rest of the nation.

Some Tears Taste Good

Some tears taste
like pure, clear spring water,
despite the salt,
and despite the fact that you know


my hands

all over these words,

To Know And To Know

my plague name

was Gary
