My self-summary
Poet, playwright, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Hopefully, what I'm doing now represents the incipient stages of something worthwhile. I am trying to learn patience.
I’m really good at
writing the kind of plays that will never get performed. (They might be interesting if performed, though.)

Creative misreading (e.g., stopping before a place called "Public House" because I thought it said "Pubic House." Oh well.)

This could be due to chronic mydriasis.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm shy, and talk a lot. (Speech can be as self-concealing as a squid's ink.) I am Pisces rising. (Yes, people see this, even if they don't phrase it to themselves this way.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This list is rather arbitrary, although with time it is becoming less so.

"Pavane" by Keith Roberts; W.H.Auden, Sarah Kane, George Oppen, Isaac Asimov ("The Mule" is one of the great characters of all time, and so is arcadia darell), J.G. Ballard.

some more poets:
A.C. Swinburne, Charles Reznikoff, John Dryden,
Byron, Shelley, Isaac Rosenberg.
Mina Loy.
New Order, PJ Harvey, The Fall, especially "Perverted By Language" and the unutterable, the latter an album soaked in poetry, history, and ketamine.
"The best firms advertise the least."
"Did you know desire's a terrible thing,
The worst that I can find?
And did you know desire's a terrible thing,
But I, well I, don't mind."

Movies: Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil" and the couple of minutes I watched of "In a Lonely Place" on youtube. Anything by David Lynch.

"Forbidden Planet" was a lot more fun than "Star Wars."

I don't watch TV, because I don't have one.

I listen to Joe Frank on occasion.

I believe in what I call "the keyhole effect:" Sometimes less information is a lot more.
Six things I could never do without
Politics- freedom of the press, the most valuable thing to any of us, the freedom to express who we are and what we think.

Ethics- the desire to tell and hear the truth, the prerequisite to living in a civilized society (see below).


A society that does not let its members starve in the streets. (Sadly, here in New York, we have not yet advanced that far.)

Parentheses (for the endless elaboration of thought.)

(And finally- that thing each day that makes me smile.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to wake up tomorrow morning.

Semantics, the arts, or art, of concealment and clarity.

the eristics, and erotetics, of eroticism.

The aforementioned "keyhole effect."

Snake Detection Theory.
On a typical Friday night I am
afflicted with writer's block. UPDATE: writer's block is going away. So, writing, or doing the reading necessary for writing. Or sleeping off the sleepless nights during the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As I've gotten older, desire has gotten stronger.
You should message me if
you, too, are fascinated by Snake Detection Theory. Or by Signal Detection Theory. Or if you, too, are struck at how apt an alliteration eristics, erotetics, and erotics is. theres a consonance in there too, no less...
The two of us
