Occupation Poet/Teacher
Introduction I am a father, husband, poet, teacher, musician, Christian, son, brother, friend, free thinker (not necessarily always in that order). I try to love everybody and dislike only those who deserve it (but in a kind, funny, sometimes sarcastic manner). Take everything I say with a grain of salt (or a shot of tequila--your choice). I don't mean to offend anyone. My only goal is to make you laugh and think a little.
Interests Writing, Music, Faith, Literature, Mental illness, Addiction, American Idol (some years)
Favorite Movies Dead Man Walking, Stand By Me, Truman, Shakespeare in Love, The Day the Earth Stood Still (original), Pans Labyrinth, Il Postino, Michael Moore documentaries, It's A Wonderful Life, City Lights
Favorite Music Tina Turner, Billy Joel, Green Day, Broadway Soundtracks, 80s music
Favorite Books Catcher in the Rye, Geek Love, Anne Lamott books, Sharon Olds poetry (especially The Dead and the Living), Philip Levine poetry, Mr. Ives' Christmas, Moleskine journals

Why does so much bad poetry get published?
