If I had known…

 

If I had known
That old age would call,
I’d have shut my gate,
Replied ‘Not at home!’
And refused to meet him.

Anonymous Japanese poet, c. 905

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.

One thought on “If I had known…

  1. Awww the best way to accept is just love who you are in the present moment – and live it with the youthful spirit! Keep rocking because you can! All’s in the mind! So keep your soul charged. Imagine all positive 🌸
