Published in Issue No. 11 ~ April, 1998

a black box affixed

in anesthetic space,


the unhinging corners of everything

convicted in enigmatic stitching,

unraveling out from a godless hole;

the leaks-

dreams don’t remember,

her name is never

it’s emptiness shrieks

The vast majority of his writing stems from the darker aspects of the human condition His years of education and work in the medical field serve as grand subject resource as well as fuel for the fire.
