perhaps I am at my limitation: trying to pull the past up to the present, trying to lean on my old tricks and not succeeding; trying to debunk and destroy the FEAR VOICE in my head; or, just trying to do the thing I say I do: thrash my spiritual…


damn, busted...I asked those very questions in my Patreon post earlier this morning, where I asked the audience that might (not) be there to tell me who they think I am and what I'm doing...after telling them I and any real artist shouldn't seek outside for an answer, and the enlightened self is able to be its own listener.


another Morning Pages exercise, preparing for a creative day I have no idea where it will go, and it need not “go” anywhere because I’ve learned there’s nowhere to arrive but Here

The only “genius” is picking yourself up off the floor of consciousness every day; after a point there…


that’s me | January 20, 2020

I don’t know if anger is the right word; poetry comes from a sense of things being ajar — I don’t know if I’ve distinguished poetry from breathing; this sounds romantic, I am romantic but my life is boring — I’m not the only man online today writing down what…


Who’s going to finance my being human and free? Who’s gonna finance my childhood? A parent? You can rely on the old man’s money. There’s an old man without courage to grow who needs stories, needs somewhere to direct his eyeballs for meaning; we’re addicted to meaning, anchorage, rest, routine…who…

on the road to being a good-enough poet, artist ~but see, the thing about
that word, those titles, is it’s about commitment; coming back to the work
even when it seems hopeless, ridiculous…

really all I have to say is I keep going no matter how impossible it is, and even if I should, I don’t do what I have to do to support myself ~ someone else can. Am I proud of it? I don’t know

I haven’t forgotten my…

“It is difficult to write a paradiso when all the superficial indications are that you ought to write an apocalypse.”
― Ezra Pound

can all I do is sketch? I always start my essays with something else to read, never do I make it easy — perhaps I’m trying to…

let’s see if I got this right ~ my new sensibility of this is “shit-post a lot on Twitter in public, read carefully, jam with people in the DMs, post and Retweet what you admire and what challenges you, articulate your sensibility, share true and beautiful things, read voices who…
