Sensitive Matter & Other Poems

  Sensitive Matter For some theirs is incredibly big For others exceedingly small. But, guys, with the best will in the world, The size doesn’t matter at all.


Lately, I’ve been getting a little frustrated with marketing books on Twitter, so forgive me if this turns into more of a rant than I intend at the outset. I use Twitter a lot and I welcome any and all who follow me and want to hear my thoughts on my life and writing. (As … Continue reading
