I think I’d soon see myself grow up and become a man if it weren’t for the desires of childhood peeking through the cracks in my wooden heart. I find myself regularly checking the time, wondering if sometime soon it will run dry and I will be left alone on the pier of another life, […]
I’ve struggled to say what I wanted to say here. It isn’t that I didn’t know the words I wanted to use or the feeling I wanted to convey. It is more that I don’t know if the things I’ve been feeling are able to connect with you the way I want them to. See, […]
You didn’t think I would forget my regular posting schedule during Mean for the Holidays, did you? Admittedly, I wondered if I should continue as normal with the Christmas season upon me.

When our careers and our lives are done, doesn’t it sound like such great fun to sit on the beach and think about all we’ve accomplished? I don’t know that I’ve ever had more fun writing a series of poems than I have this month. This has been an absolute riot + I […]
Part Three of the Captain series I’ve been working on. I’ve had such a ball writing these poems. Honestly, I’ve always had a pretty big fascination with the ocean and the act of sailing.
