My Freestyle Vision

These past couple of months you may have noticed that I have been posting poems on the website Freestyle Vision. Nothing big but I've decided to link to my page on the website here in case any of you want to view all I've put up on there. The story behind the picture? I was hot and sweaty from sitting in front of a grill at a BBQ in Koreatown, Manhattan. They laughed at me for accidentally eating a condiment by itself. The important thing was that it was for free. Ah, the good ole' food floor at Broome Street residence hall.

Lesson of the Month

Poems from an Allegedly 23 Year-Old Poet

Hello all, I have two poems in the latest issue of MungBeing. The theme of this issue is "expectations," namely how our dreams of the future have played out so far, as seen in this piece from Tim Hatch. My poems are called "A Problem with Mechanisms" and "The Hour Badly Spent." Read them and enjoy!

Wine Girl

In the winter issue (#3) of the journal SparkBright I have a poem entitled "Wine Girl." It is based on the good old days of visiting the Trader Joe's Wine Store at Union Square in New York. If you download the issue and go to page 17, you will see it at the bottom, I guess they saved the best for last!

Ink in My Blood

I have a poem appearing in this book, entitled "Ink in My Blood." It is on page 169, which is the old number of my gym locker at Swanson Middle School. Go Anchors! Or Admirals! Or Rudders! I can't remember what we were called.
