Biography

OK..put on your Hep-cat poetry hat...
take a seat....and speak the beat!

Go ahead...walk the yard of avant-garde..
rub on your poetry in motion body lotion,
snap your fingers,
tap your feet...
to the beat!

Let's go!
Ruck-sack
we're goin' back
to Ginsberg & Kerouac...

Coffee cafe',
benzedrine,
Buddha cake...

Ju-Ju jollies
and poetry follies!

I'm just a Bohemian Word Wrangler Outlaw eating pieces of poems falling down like rain..licking, flicking abstract...A Beat-Poet, I am a huge fan of Ginsberg, Kerouac, DiPrima, Rexroth, Norse, Whalen, Snyder, Burroughs, Waldman, Kaufman, Ferlinghetti, Creely, McClure,...& many more. My favorite book is my 1st edition-Beatitude Anthology.
I especially did alot of writing during the time I spent as a victim of Domestic Violence..way before I became addicted to the Beats... It was many moons ago, when I was younger..from 1977 to 1987...but the experience forever changed me...and will always be a part of who I am. I no longer let it penetrate my being and have re-entered life without hate and with enthusiasm..not to say, it wasn't a long, dark and dangerous journey to break on through to the other side....but I did...and I'm still alive. Every great once in awhile I will look back...and wonder...what the hell?
I can tell you...even the most intelligent people can be sucked into the vortex....
I have chosen to share these poems in hope that people will grow to understand what the hell goes on....but mainly because I want people to stop ignoring the obvious signs of abuse, as well as not allowing yourself to fall victim to a life of hell...these particular poems are basically just raw feelings written during that time ..(a poet not yet born) in retrospect, I do believe they saved my life....
Nowadays I'm a soapmaker & herb enthusiast, love art..especially abstract/Picasso, poetry readings, music, essential oils/aromatherapy, campfires, purses, worn out jeans & barefeet, handcrafted silver jewelry...I am addicted to caffeine and nicotine while holding a pen especially...love spending time with friends & family..and with nature...where I can just be...the bohemian in me... I am also an Advertising Account Exec for a Cable Co. ( I am also happily married!) You can visit my Blog at http://bohemiansoap.blogspot.com/

i really enjoyed your biography and can surely see that we will become like a prose family. at least that what i hope and feel since your style is raw and i'll surely draw inspiration from i saw. i've been interested in writing now for 6 whole mont

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
