The Curse of the Poet
Parades of working class heroes coming up from underground. Walking as if in a trance. New York City, a week or so from Christmas, cold air and green trees line the sidewalks. But the beauty is lost and ignored.
That Lucky Old Sun
A sense of self imposed apartheid; bars on my window and chains on my door, visible to myself, to others they are non existent, there are no restraints.
It was a beautiful spring day after a long and cold winter. I spent lunch sitting in the grass in Bryant Park. Something had gone wrong for me along the way to the summit. I had been sentenced to time in a cubicle selling invisible screams for attention.
Prologue I am writing this testimonial to simply put straight all the rumors, lies, and fantasies that have been written, spoken, and sung about me. I have been the fodder for the creative poverty population who are stricken with the disease of self importance and are self appointed experts and rank strangers who claim to have known me, loved me, and befriended me.

News broke out this morning about Matt Lauer's firing. It was announced on his former program on NBC's "Today Show." Another person who was wildly popular who used his power to sexually harass others. Another wildly popular and emulated celebrity who betrayed.
Shadows and Ghosts
You feel it when you leave. There is an inner burning sensation, its location is random or maybe not. The sensation starts off numb but soon it’s aflame.
Tales from The F Train
Five forty five, Tuesday, November 7th, 2017 waiting for the F train in the 34th Street station. Its been a day yet it feels as if it were three. But! I have my kindle in my pocket and “Look Homeward, Angel,” waiting to be read. The world of Liza, Gant, Eugene and the people of Altamont.
