The Difference Between Us (live)

…or maybe we should concentrate on what we have in common…

The difference between a lover and friend
is the difference between the start and the end
the difference between a crack and a bend
that’s the difference between us

The difference between your life’s longest day
and the one when you wake up, you’re running away
people who cry and people who pray
that’s the difference between us

The difference between alone and alive
is the difference between a push and a dive
difference between desire and design
that’s the difference between us

My novel The Zoo was published by Cacoethes Publishing House and my poetry chapbook The New Normal was published by Analog Submission Press. 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.
