I don't know about a poet. I think that appellation belongs to honored individuals; past present and future. If I achieve something, "Poetic," then I have accomplished something amazing. I am passionate about many things.
I ain't no academic though I've been writing for two score with the typical ups and downs. My work seeks intimacy and passion especially as it pertains to the dark and sometimes ugly side of the street. Thankfully beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
