Biography of Thayne Tuason
When I was a teenager I joined the circus. I was once a professional snowboarder and followed Jerry Garcia to his grave in 1995. I am a diagnosed schizophrenic, a title I earned before my BS in Science with an emphasis on plants from Central Washington University in 2003. I've worked as a dishwasher, prep cook, cook, maid, lift operator, snow shoveler, clerk in a music box shop and antique store and a ski rental shop, picked and packed fruit, janitor, biological technician, botanist, wildland fire fighter, crew boss and even as an archaeologist at times. I'm also a prolific photographer of native plants and still skateboard 29 years after I started.
Pablo Neruda is my favorite poet, please see my website with English translations that I've done- http: //palomasdoves.wordpress.com
Thayne Tuason Poems
The world that lovely thing lithe and precious bright and beautiful
Regrets Of A Botanist (In Part)
But the Chilean Arucarias call
All I keep seeing is a cold sea (see) vast
the guillotine the guillotine the guillotine is in the square
Our Lives Together...
the threat of a future
Lifecycle Of A Butterfly
I would come to your door por favor to beg you in tongues LET MY EYELASHES FORGET YOU NOW
All God's finest racehorses wear burlap sacks while the worst wear reigns and bridles
And I languish in my infernal mortal solitary confinement
For our work did not end when shots were fired and the beast finally lay bloodied and defeated
Yo Te Escribiría Un Mil Canciones De Amo...
Yo te escribiría un mil canciones de amor (I would write you a thousand love songs)
Everyday I went to school everyday I got beat up and they took me in the back alley way
Babble On! !
Then one day out of the ruins of Babylon a fair maiden came
Mi Casa I inherited
