Grain of Hope

I am going to run
through the waves of the ocean
that glaze each grain of sand
into the waiting arms
of my beach-blond crush
without care or worry
or thoughts of dying young.
Cancer will fade like the setting sun
and only the two of us will remain
with the seagulls.

State of Defeat

 

Oh, how I envied

the normals

from my feeble state

on the lowly park bench.

Brain Weeds and Depressed Souls (Writing as Black Angel)

Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to announce that my 6th book of poems, the second installment in the Spilt Ink Poetry Collection is scheduled to be released on October 22, 2013. The book (Brain Weeds and Depressed Souls) itself is finished, but I am in a search of a front cover. If you are interested, I will be periodically posting poems from the book over on the Spilt Ink Poetry blog throughout the summer! You can also read poems from the first installment, Concrete Promises, or just purchase the eBook now at Lulu.com for $1.99. Once more, thank you for your continued support. I am on a journey to celebrate poetry.
