We Need You · October 2014, The Rasp and the Wine. From first bicycle to first arcade game. From first car to first drink. From first job to last job. From pub crushes to marriage. The path through manhood is never clear, always fraught, and sometimes, beautiful.
Corduroy Forecast · October 2010, The Rasp and the Wine. Sixteen poems that explore the past, present, and future of manhood. From failing to follow instructions to trying to reconcile young-man tattoos with a older man’s body and life, this small collection touches on the importance of family, the shifting nature of strength, and coping with loss.
The Fast Places · April 2008, Red Nettle Press. In December 2007 I suffered a near-fatal run-in with a pulmonary blood clot. I spent the last 16 days of 2007 in a hospital. Emerging from the ordeal with a renewed sense of hope and empathy,The Fast Places is a short response to those events. Cars, friends, blood, and mortality all make appearances in this collection, published in early 2008. An extended prayer, and a thank you. (no longer available)
