street poet-18

I believe in the power of a good poem that fits in your pocket.

I also believe that poems are for reading and for giving, not for dusty textbooks.

In 1996 I left home with my trusty Smith-Corona typewriter, I spent more than a decade on the road, writing everywhere from Pacific ocean beaches to New York City coffee shops and as many desert rocks and mountaintops as I could find in between. Twenty years later, I am in Austin, Texas and still writing.

I do it out of love, and I do it to give away. I do it to be part of the eternal conversation.

Pocket-sized poems let us say what we mean when we can’t find the words, or take a short, deep break on a stressful day.

I write them for people by request and at events, so whether you want one for yourself or to give as a gift, I can help.
