20 years old, started writing poetry at 17, never liked to read poetry. Have only gained interests and have books of Ginsberg and Eliot. Most recently Dec '08, Bukowski, of whom I must admit appeals to me greatly. Never enjoyed poetry because the thought was there had to be rules, when one day the first poem was written of which was later become known in the mind as free verse, from that day forward the emotions have been steadily addressed by the feeble mind and justified on paper. This writing is love. more »

    This poet openly writes fact of facts on dominant faces
    A picture of this and that and that and
    This.
    Eternal sunshine
    Of spotless mind?
    Spots on mind,
    Spots on paper,
    Where ideas walk away
    And no understanding
    Is found.
    What’s found?
    Who’s found?
    Confusion!
    Chaos!
    Illusions!
    Oh man and his illusions
    Ha!
    Old men
    On chairs
    Tell stories
    Of war.
    Transparent faces
    On the wall,

crippled restaurant
to buy a burger

chips & peppers
(though I lie, I
come because of
her)
takes my order,
small talk,
genuine smile,
like she's the
only living being
who acknowledges.
some nights, like tonite,
it's plain,
but the burger is
pleasing, the lettuce,
tomato, meat, bread, sauce,
peppers, onions, all make
it worth something.
and the flashing lights
roll by and I ...
