Half of You


Half of what I say is only half of what I feel
Half of what I feel I cannot reveal
Half of what I think is probably wrong
Half of what I do takes me two times too long
Half of you is better than all of any other girl
Half of you is better than the rest of the whole world
Half of my time I’m throwing away
Until half of my life has faded into grey
Half of you is so much more
Than double what I had before
Half of you is better than all of any other girl
Half of you is better than the rest of the whole world

Named one of New York's Best Emerging Poets 2019, my poetry chapbook The New Normal was published by Analog Submission Press. My novel The Zoo was published by Cacoethes Publishing House. Other poems and short stories have appeared in Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine, among others. Other works include a staged reading of my play Digging Up John Barrymore, performed by Dreamcatcher Entertainment, and five albums of original music recorded with my band Late Model Humans.
