I am a 64 year old, retired, police and fire dispatcher for the city of San Francisco. I divide my time between the Bay Area and Green Valley, AZ.
I have known that I was a poet since the end of adolescence. However, I largely avoided writing poetry until I was compelled by circumstances to do so. It was a terrible way to fall awake. I have been writing seriously, if sporadically, since 2007. The creation of a web site is not an attempt to promote the poems; rather, I acknowledge them as I seek to preserve them.
There are a very few poems that I shall not record here. Either they refer to others or to my Alma Mater.
If you are a wanderer who has happened by: WELCOME. Peace.
