READ!******NEW: Shadow Boxing The Infinite, Phantoms Of The Northern Forests, The New Poetry Hotel, and STEEL BUTTERFLIES*

The past few weeks have been taken up with editing and making, through further editing & arranging the order of poems, three recently published books, ready and available.

At the conjunction of the secular and the spiritual, unencumbered by the intricacies of the metaphysical minus the impermanence of the everyday details while utilizing all and each.
How we see affecting what we see; and thus how we are seen, in an endless process illustrating that self/identity are not fixed, but transformative.

Phantoms Of The Northern Forests, and Shadow Boxing The Infinite.

Both books deal with the peculiar sense of mortality among things, society and people in our particular times in Shadow Boxing The Infinite.

Revealing the myths of historical and material perceptions through a dance with what’s finite by shadow boxing the infinite through a constancy of comprehension.


How we see affecting what we see; and thus how we are seen, in an endless process illustrating that self/identity are not fixed, but transformative especially given overwhelming influences attempting to hijack and control our responses in Phantoms Of The Northern Forests.

Where seasons and the processes of aging & maturing parallel a regeneration of awareness beyond the usual means of conceit through intervolving relationships with climate, landscapes, people and pets.
With an emphasis on how perception is affected and how it changes what takes priority in our valuations of what we perceive, and thus in ourselves, of the transformations in focus and simplicity.

Specifics, both personal and objective, are detailed, while a sense of history throughout remains, with the poems standing integrally alone, absent the necessity of contemporary social or personal awareness inhibiting a comprehensive clarity.


THE NEW POETRY HOTEL – The Poet as metaphor – where we exist as equal inhabitants, as those occupied by boundaries beyond imposed conceits.

The New Poetry Hotel: now where we all live.
