2011 – 2012


“Give it a sixty-
two, Dick. It had an odd beat;
could you dance to it?”


promises proclaimed
vast improvements vowed
compliance deferred


January’s hope
March’s actualities
December’s ‘oh-ohs’…

I am a poet, writer and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 to help rebuild the worst public school system in America. It is a huge challenge to say the least. Now, after ten years, I have returned home to my native Midwest. Writing - in many different forms and ways - has saved me untold thousands in therapy bills throughout the years. Reading my writings may do either the same - or just the opposite - for you. Read at your own risk, as I do not offer writer malpractice insurance. ;-{) I hope you enjoy what you read here.
