{name calling} is my newest self-published poetry collection

it’s here:

book preview on site is book entire

free PDF is available. also, free hardy copy available for review. contact me at


poems, from it, are below:


[entries for listen]

to window
we’re moving


[entries for fixation]

the name of this scar
they couldn’t hide
the canoe

mom says there’s an oven
at the bottom of every lake

that I was born asleep
by toe touchers

is art
for the geeks
of grief

have you crucified



[entries for children]

remember, it is dark and memory is god painting with the blood of those he would create
