I am The Clever Bastard. The self-professed genius who visits the lives of others as tourists visit Amsterdam and Paris. Taking photos and leaving so much of myself behind. A well-read hanger-on. A true networker.

The last 20+ years of my life have been spent shaking hands and toasting with folks who complement me. One of my greatest mentors, Raymond Shipman, once said “I don’t want the luxury car if my brother can’t have one, too.” So I’ve been working on cars for everyone. A few months ago I was asked “what is it you do?” Instead of telling her how I make my money, I responded with “I smile, laugh, drink and every once in a while catch a flight to a place that hasn’t seen rain in ages.” That’s what I do.

I paid close attention to the way my hand moved toward your neck
The way I moved through your doors and your days
I didn’t tell you I think of you often
I will tighten my grip to keep your head from turning when you need to breathe
Breathe into my mouth
I will take you whole or in the pieces you reveal to me slowly
You will never come back up
