UK collaboration commission performance pop


I'm a poet who makes his living from collaboration.

I passionately believe that poetry is undershooting it's mark on the international fine arts scene. My work often reflects that.

Not in content, don't worry, in presentation.

We do wicked things in Liverpool and London. Music, illustration and poetry, and our new sister, performance art.

Here's a performance of mine...

This is our… Continue

Hello Friday

Hello Friday
You're my fave
All week long
I did save
Up my thirst for fun
Now lets get it done!

Celebrate the Sick

It's Miller time folks
Give yourselves a hand
We hit an all time low
Let the testimony stand

Bullshit is truth
Ignorance is bliss
It doesn't get any better
Any better than this

Gather round friends
Lend me your ears
let's reduce these motherf*****
to a pool of tears

Let's burn our candle down to the wick
It's a brand a new religion
Celebrate the Sick

Poetry and Publishers

Though poetry is making a comeback, especially classic poetry, traditional publishers, such as Random House and Penguin Group, are still hesitant to take on such a project. It would be helpful if everyone who enjoys poetry would let major publishers know by going to their websites and sending comments. Start by looking inside the covers in your favorite books and see who the publisher is. Then look them up online.

Buying gobs of poetry books wouldn't hurt either.

No Sweet Goodbyes - Lyrics/Chords

Intro: C

Time will tell the truth for all

You can't find what's meant to be lost

Be proud of your pain
Again and again

It's caused a big stain
But that's your refrain
I'm proud of my pain

I was highlighted in a newspaper column today

In today's issue of the Hutchinson News, an article appeared about me and my relationship with Greensburg, KS, and the 5.4.7 Arts Center. "Poet, Arts Center 'Splendid' Partners," describes my new book as well as my interest in the small town's rebuilding efforts. About two hours west of Wichita, Greensburg was obliterated by an EF-5 tornado in May 2007.

'Splendid' refers to the title of my book, "A Splendid Alternative" and the title poem inspired by Greensburg's phoenix-like… Continue
