I grew up in Alabama & Virginia playing guitar & writing songs, losing my shoes in creeks, reading every music publication I could scrounge in either one stoplight town, & writing articles about my impending rock stardom.
I went to college in North Carolina and dove into theatre for the chance to sing & because getting naked backstage with a bunch of people seems the most efficient mode of introduction. Besides, they partied more dangerously than the Social Work majors.
I fell completely accidentally on purpose into an experimental lifestyle. My friends back home attributed this change to the distance between my parents and me. I disagreed, insisting that in fact, the change was due to the distance between my parents' church and me.
Dang, it was fun.
I sing & play because I can't help it. I write poetry because I love the orgasmic riot of beating my head against a wall until I feel something give, & then the tense erotic excitement of feeling around to see if it was my head or the wall.
My perverse creative writing persistence has resulted in my
being published in several journals, most recently in Powhatan Review & Blue Collar Review, a progressive literary journal fostering workers' rights. It's too late for them to change their minds, so Ha!
Thank you for listening!
