Introspection Love and Romance Relationships Uncategorized


I eschew sex.

Firmly entrenched
in middle age
I have found the act
wanting, boring

the physicality dull,
old hat

has lost its interest
in me

shunning sex,
I have discovered
making love

It is the side effect of
the residue of having
love, lost, found

I am the artist
who has traded Play Dough
for the potters wheel

I am a poet, writer, and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 then returned to Minnesota in 2018 - hopefully, to stay.

I lived in the most urban of settings, and the rural Midwest. These perspectives impact my writing in very unique ways.
