Poetic Glimmer of a Vatic Vision
As a poet, it would be safest to abandon this collection to a drawer, unsaid; unshared. But that is not what was requested of me. These are a labor of love through delight and despair, and I hope it will provide some glimmer of enjoyment or meaning.
- The crux of the Erstwhile poetry is to reconcile the issues between man and woman, and approach the relationship in a union that transcends the petty mockery of the ego and drama.
- The Individual encompasses those reflections inspired by spiritual studies juxtaposed in a life of dreaming, uncertainty and growing responsibility.
- The Myth of self identity plays out through life's myriad stories and actions; each contained in mundane and spiritual struggles of internal and projected phantasmagoria.
- The Observer occupies the role of witness, both to the workings of the manifest world, but more importantly, to the internal workings of my own thoughts and emotions.
I have long since resigned the ideals and travails of youth, devolving seemingly toward mid-life stuck in the rut of responsibility. I am a good person, secretly railing against the laziness of common humanity, while trying to find meaning beyond the rut. I am a husband, father, brother and son. I am an artist, an employee, and storyteller. I am a poet pointing towards myself.
