Poet Introduction

Wish to record authentic verbal snapshots of an old man looking back on life, lessons learned, regrets, hopes, triumphs, losses in the hope of self-publishing a collection to leave behind. Not very sexy, I know. 1,000 kowtows in apology.

Favorite Poets/Writers

Gluck, Eliot, Ginsberg, Whitman, Billy Collins

About Me

Read Full
Kerouac was a big influence in my youth, but I find him self-indulgent and irresponsible now. Love Allen Ginsberg, plus a lot of traditional poets, many of whom I memorized as a 17 y/o boy.  I survived a childhood of extreme violence and found solace in drugs and alcohol. Marijuana still rocks. Been with lots of women, one of which was a tv character from Honolulu. Am now in my final relationship with a woman I wish Id met 30 years ago. Ran the Honolulu Marathon in 1980. Been there, done that. Any questions?
