About Me

I was born with my eyes closed into a golden manger, South of the central crevice of this very world. I listened attentively. I dreamt excessively. Some dreams fell into the abyss of the void, some had already happened in the vague vision of some cynical future road. I was born with my hands taut, into arms of relatives who awaited anxiously with frenzied concepts, into relatives who awaited curiously to base their morbid expectations on blind love.

Then I started traveling. I met a beautiful girl with long legs. We melted our minds and made love many times, especially on frugal afternoons. Then she left me for so many reasons I forget. I found and lost myself many times, blinded and enlightened, by the glaring neon lights. I did drugs in beautiful places. I got along with my loneliness in-between arguments with my conscience. I never got a real job, except for a brief season selling kitchen knives. I drunk too much as I tightened my relationship with God. Metaphysics and girls blinded my eyes from anything else. My hands then withered. I made my mother cry. But sometimes purity seduced me, more than darkness, more than glow� I tried to return to Ithaca, but I couldn�t find the road. Then I learned to walk slowly, to admire simple things in the meager vulnerability of my torn shoes. And someday, with the strigs hanging from the fingers of the shuffle, like a pupet, I will sit smiling at my beautiful defeat.


Brief Disclaimer
This is nothing but a blatant attempt to achieve a certain degree of truth, which does not mean I can achieve it. Like anyone else, doubt climbs up my body and holds me by the neck. I not know if I can write. At times I even feel I should ask for your permission before I begin to write or before I ornament myself with the credentials of a thinker, but I do not write for you. Dear reader, you are my relevance but not my mission. With the sincerity of a child, the fear of an adult and the vulnerability of a human, I confess that I yearn for you to enjoy it. If I have been pretentious, I do hope you can forgive the imperfection and see my purpose: truth and beauty. Dear reader, I am a tormented man, and this, at times oozes on my pages and creates many contradictions. But what is a man without contradictions? And what is truth without torment? Forgive me if I tangle the pieces and try to find humor in these meager daguerreotypes.

Thanks for reading. If you knew my mother you would never advise me to listen to her. :-)

Thanks for listening to the playlist. I imagine most people have many things to talk about over drinks. What about the playlist would we talk about?

Thank you for the review. My poems are not what most people call poetry. I never strive to write the perfect poem, just put into words what my emotions put me through. I appreciate your time.

I like his brutality, but at the same time, his tender heart.
I am from France, it is where I was born. But I moved to the United States when I was 13. Now, I live in Massachusetts.
I will undoubtedly continue reading your work.

Charles Bukowski is an amazing writer! I have read Post Office, Ham on Rye and Pulp by him. I hope to read more of his novels and definitely more of his poetry.
