I have chosen the name Long Tooth because it suggests that I am an older American male. A more humorous interpretation might be that my poems have bite! While I hope that you find this is true, I leave it to your judgment.

I worship an inclusive God, who cares more about what is in a man's heart than what church he attends if he goes at all, a God, who judges one's faith by how you live your life, the kindness you show to strangers. These concepts are not uniquely Christian for sure, but I was born into a Christian family, even though my early church rejected blacks and Catholics out of hand with no consideration. I leave all judgment of others to God as I have never walked in anyone's shoes but my own. God has my complete trust and the highest goal of each day of my life is to walk in His Will! I view God's will for my life not to be an imposition on me at all but a guiding light desiring nothing more than that I should discover a unique bliss that embraces all of my talents.

The day that any poem that I write touches you in brotherhood and encourages you to trust God more, I will count a Holy Day!

The pseudonym "Roof Missing" is a Russian expression that I think is cute. It suggests that "I've blown my top!", "My mind is gone!", or "I'm so exasperated or confused!"
