Words of Affirmation

Funny how powerful is the highest compliment for a man,

and a liability for women.


I imagined my rescue in a man’s hands,

On a white horse,

Wings of some kind,

A golden ticket,

A serendipitous blessing–

somehow, salvation would find me.

It took a million wishes before I learned my life jacket was always in my own chest.

My Love Poems

I write about love the way a lot of men write about strong women–

deeply intoxicated by the idea

but a complete stranger to the reality.

My love poems are dimension-less symphonies

lovely and without substance.

Poetry They are starved for content in the same way I’m starved for love.
