Things that could have stopped me

A normal childhood
without pharmacology

Never learned Latin

My parents stayed together

Don’t own a tweed jacket

The voices inside my head encourage
but never scream

Incessant cries of the breakfast flock

Living in countries
where poets are killed

Time changes and the dark seasons

Red pen within


  1. I've seen a photo of you in a tweed jacket with leather elbow patches!

  2. Busted! This was for a reading at a museum and a good friend accessorized me. But I drew the line at the pipe - must be authentic, don't you know?

  3. I enjoyed this very much. Haven't visited in ages, I hope all is well with you, JDM.
