I am a poet obsessed with beauty, death and the bridge that unites them: desire. I believe fervently that silence is the language of the cosmos and that every poem is an act of triple communication with ourselves, others, and transcendence. I believe in music, sister of poetry. I trust in individuals and distrust in humanity.
I like drinking bourbon and I like to sing. I like to listen to music surrounded by friends, anywhere. I also like solitude and silence. I am a spiritual man who enjoys the privileges of the skin, of the ephemeral. I live in Cincinnati, Ohio, and I teach literature.
