so many want to change the one they first fell for
I’ve been lost, I’ve been alone, I’ve despaired, and I’ve drank. Now I know that there is someone out there for me, I never need to walk alone. I know that when I find her I’ll care for her for who she is, not for who I want her to be.
I never need to walk alone, unless that’s what Fate decrees.
And Fate had better watch out.
she’s not the one
she never was

Noah though he could fix the arc
with just a phillips screwdriver
the geese disagreed
with thanks to Paula Light for the phillips, thought, geese prompt

the first draft is just me telling myself the story
Except the writing isn’t on the wall, or anywhere else for that matter. Now the poetry anthology Seascapes and Serenity Lost is finished and published on Amazon, I feel the need for a new project, a new book, perhaps a collection of short stories. Maybe I have a title Dreams of Desire, but no idea what the content is going to be. Or how about a Bond spoof ~ maybe not.
From the James Bond movie Spectre.
You can do the pose if you wish.
Different music for me.

poetry is nearer to reality than is the unadorned truth
Both the kindle and print versions of my poetry anthology Seascapes and Serenity Lost are now available on Amazon. Trust me, the 8 x 10 paperback edition will look fabulous on your coffee table.
I must pay tribute to Jan Olandese who did all the hard work of editing and formatting both editions.
The one review I think I’ve received thus far is pretty damn positive.
Some of the stuff I’ve written is more than brutally truthful.

poetry is a equal mixture of English and angst
The printed version of my poetry anthology Seascapes and Serenity Lost should be available on Amazon within the next couple of hours. It’s a 10 by 8 inches, magazine-sized, paperback. So, I thought this old Beatles song would be rather fun.
There’s also a much cheaper kindle version of the book.
Of course the paperback will look great on your coffee table.
the picture is mine too
it’s all in a dream
Seascapes and Serenity Lost
You can probably learn more about me by reading some of my poetry anthology than you could ever learn from anything I ever posted on here ~ and I have promulgated some gritty and very personal stuff.
Anyhow, my anthology is now available on Amazon, in several important countries, including the US, UK, and points east. (For some good reasons, for the next few days the print copy is ‘author only’)
The words and pictures are all my own work, and there are a lot of photographs interleaved with the poetry.
I am also deeply indebted to Jan Olandese, who edited the whole thing.
the shining sea
talks with me
maybe she was that way because she was sad and lonely
leaving a carnal, sexual, woman
one battle over, one victory won
the long struggle that will end
one day in honesty and freedom
not for her, not for years to come
heading to her favorite bar
to look for a much younger man
you never lose someone you have truly loved
let the rains fall
and wash away her tears
let me be strong
and take away her fears
let me be kind enough
to wish her well
now she loves another
walking away from everything
addicted to sex, hitting the bars, picking up younger men
I was mystified
she cheated and lied
sadly that’s bad
she likes young men
when she can get them
and they know what to do
cheating doesn’t come from a lack of love
it comes from a lack of respect
I saw you with that whore
open dress public amore
that’s only the final coup
guess that we’re through
nobody to blame but you
you could never be true
got to find someone new
well baby it’s a fond adieu
so stew you faithless bore
you can’t hurt me anymore
did you have to choose someone older?
