So – you are wondering – after almost fifteen years, why is he posting poetry almost exclusively?
Well, I mean, who doesn’t love poetry?
Honestly, almost everything I share – prose, poetry, autobiographical – is shared with an intent to evoke a feeling.
And poetry is my sharpest knife. The fastest way to mainline my intent. To inject my current mood or feelings directly into the veins of those who read my words.
Life evolves. The wolf under my skin is still there, but he’s older, slightly (so very slightly) wiser – and just as hungry.
I never write for a particular audience. I always write for myself first, and for the attentive reader second. Throwing bottled words to the world to see what the tides would turn up.
NE is still here. She’s kneeling by my desk right now. I spend every weekend with her and Bear. In a moment I am going to have my hands around her neck and her breath is going to belong to me.
Like I said.
Some things never change.
