here you will find some of my poetry... i have made some attempt to categorize it, loosely, by topic.
for me, poetry is an attempt to say what i cannot say in linear speech; a kind of meta-language; the closest thing i can find in language to the polyphony that is possible in music.
i should also preface this collection by saying that i use poetry as a kind of emotional catharsis, as i'm certain is true of many other poets. as such a particular poem is most likely an accurate depiction of the state of mind, when i wrote the poem, although it may not be, and is probably not the way i am thinking all the time!
