Austin, Texas
My Poetry is largely centered around -
Love (and the unsuccessful pursuit of it), Angst (told through tales of excess and addiction), & Transcendence (escaping the yoke of egoic illusion by embracing the ineffable infinity of internal divinity)
"Uncouth Youth" and "Distracted In Hell" are my stream-of-consciousness channels (aren't they all?) in which I hold poorly reasoned conversations with me, myself and I to explore whichever deep-seated insecurities currently plague my psyche.
I like to imagine Jack Kerouac riding upon the cosmic wheel of time; shedding a single mescaline-soaked tear whilst reading my tales of tomfoolery.
