This poetry was compiled during the winter of 1995-6. It came as part of a strong and decisive wave of information, which the author was dedicated to capturing. The intention to share as a book came largely from a writers' workshop during the spring of 2002.
In picking the path, we must remember how inadequate words can be, but how important the commitment to specification must be. This poetry is presented in the form of four chapters, each a little different in style, but not by much. There is much to say and then there is much to write. These poems are highly idiosyncratic; therefore capitalization, punctuation, and spelling are intentional. They are my invitation to the reader to flex the boundaries.
In reference to the artwork, the interaction of interior and exterior to invite another kind of journey. The originals are in color, so here we should consider the basics. Black, white, and grays are good visual levelers. Silhouettes and motion are primal here. The primacy is, however, muted by all that implies grace. The movement is toward a comfortable state of innate identity; cognizant of the beauty, the power, the potential of all that is I.
