I'm a librarian and have been writing poetry (on and off) since my early 20s. I began writing poetry again in early 2021 after a long (30+ year) hiatus. Three of my poems were recently published in "PS: It's Still Poetry, vol.II"--and my poems also appeared in AllPoetry's "Revealing Everything" and "I Am Because We Are." I've written short stories and novels--and have published book, film, and music reviews. I'm also a member of PoetrySoup and CosmoFunnel. Some of my favorite poets include e.e.cummings, Emily Dickinson, T.S.Eliot, Ferlinghetti, Berryman, Bukowski, and Charles Bernstein.
