Soon Enough_Moment2

I didn’t know when I was a child
That it was you I was in love with
It didn’t have to be
But it was

I didn’t know where I would find
The fairy in the forest
The angel on Olympus
Then there you were

When I think about how lonely life can be
and how easy it is to hide
that’s when I realize how lucky I can be
to have you by my side

I didn’t know what I didn’t know
About the Cross-Bronx Expressway
And how the hard way is the best way
And how it’s not that hard

I don’t know where this road ends
Or how the end will happen
But I guess we’ll both find out
Soon enough

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 various publications, including Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine. 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.
