I could be driving or cycling when all of a sudden an idea will surface. In those instances I repeat the idea in my mind until I'm able to get to a place where I can write down those scattered thoughts. Other times inspiration comes when listening to music, watching television, reading other poets or blog posts, or simply scrolling through my twitter feed. And those times when I don't have access to my laptop, I'll record my ideas onto my iPhone's voice recorder app.(less)

speaking on behalf of


there are always questions
and not enough prophets to push us
in slightly different directions
it’s the way it goes I suppose
a common phrase
complementing so many
circumstances

the only church downtown
morphed into a 24/7 shelter
hosting mic night
every sunday at noon
attracting seers of all sorts
propagating their doomsday
scenarios

“A man is nothing without dreams. A man is called idiot while he dreams. Whatever he does, he'll be judged and thrown away from the circle of clowns. And yet he needs acceptance and security from sick society, which is discriminatory far too often. But a man is blinded by other people opinions. He wants to fly and they say, “You moron, you can't do that, it's forbidden, it's stupid.” And a man gives up on his dreams.”
