I could put all sorts of high minded ideas that I have here. And my work and intentions ahve changed pretty dramatically over the years. But I still find that the origin story and inspiration holds true: What is Pulp Poetry?
The only thing that’s really changed from that treatise is that I will promise you constant poetry. Because all writing, all language is poetry, whether it’s a rhyming couplet poured out by a broken heart, or the curse word filled screaming match a few days before that gave the heart the most recent crack.
Language is the magic that gives us awareness. Language is our primary sense. Language is the root of all reality as we understand it. Stories guide our lives and give us things to hope for and dread. Whether it’s a favorite book, movie, author, or the events you construct when you think about yesterday. Every drop of experience, history, idea, and memory could not exist if it wasn’t for language.
That’s all as near to fact as I can make it. My belief is that because of that, everything we do is poetry. Everything is art. Mundane or sublime. How do I want to live my life, knowing this?
This website is my growing body of poetry. Sometimes, poetry I’ve found (but most of that will just be shared directly in social media channels, below) that has impacted me, but most of what you’ll find here are my expressions of many impacts.
I’m a writer, artist, chef, game designer, theologian, social critic, and photographer with varying degrees of professional and amateur status.
I’m on Tumblr.
There’s my Twitter.
