Humans have always wanted to make a useless thing.
Poet Author Art Critic
I hope you enjoy reading my poetry, art reviews, and articles, and viewing my poems and artwork. I will try to keep this place interesting and up-to-date with my latest creative and imaginative works. I have many Works In Progress (WIP) that I will add to and change as I work and write. One of my favorite enduring WIP is The Triumph of Death at Pisa, a long poem I have been writing for many years. Another is a critical work, Durance in Verse: The Philosophy of Poetry, which I will post sections of as I develop them and progress. I was the most long-tenured Contributing Editor to Artweek before its demise in July 2009, so you can find my reviews in the archive of that publication and also included in the biographies and resumes of the many artists I have written about over the years. I was also an Arts & Entertainment Writer for Examiner.com. I have also included links here to some of my reviews and essays.
