My self-summary
I'm just another poet stuck working behind a bar. I'm fairly new to the PNW, moved to Seattle from Missouri to avoid a crucifixion. I'm a wavering vegetarian and wannabe social activist.
What I’m doing with my life
making lists
learning to brew beer
fighting writer's block
indoor gardening
"finding myself"
I’m really good at
writing an occasional poem
making lists
not completing them
observational humor
staring contests
cooking breakfast for you
and a bloody mary if you'd like
also pasta.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair and the subsequent resemblance it gives me to a particularly well-known religious figure. I had to flee the Midwest, they were going to crucify me!

The six things I could never do without
Since food, air, water, family and friends and all that jazz is obvious and necessary, I'll go with more superfluous things I enjoy:

good beer, no PBR's for this guy
good conversation
Rock & Roll
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Richard Brautigan sums it up for me quite well:

"I like to think (and
the sooner the better!)
of a cybernetic meadow
where mammals and computers
live together in mutually
programming harmony
like pure water
touching clear sky.

I like to think
(right now, please!)
of a cybernetic forest
filled with pines and electronics
where deer stroll peacefully
past computers
as if they were flowers
with spinning blossoms.

I like to think
(it has to be!)
of a cybernetic ecology
where we are free of our labors
and joined back to nature,
returned to our mammal
brothers and sisters,
and all watched over
by machines of loving grace."
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching people make fools of themselves and wishing I was one of them. The bartender's life can be a lonely one.
You should message me if
Obviously if you find me interesting and attractive. We all know why we're here, no need to be shy.
