Personal Top 10
Falling Out of Love– This short poem was written during the first of two separations from my daughter’s mother.
Eponymous 2014– My year-end poem for 2013, an annual tradition that started on Facebook in 2010. This was the best of them.
A Decade of Engagement– This poem was written about a fictional girl who leaves the love of her life for a more financially stable relationship.
Anatomy of an Exploding Man– Probably the most politically charged poem I’ve ever written.
Forever ’03/Forever ’14- Two pieces written about the power of nostalgia and its accompanying downfalls.
At War with Water– The poem that started it all.
Millennials– a poem inspired by the suicide of a close friend in 2008.
F*ck It– Quite possibly the best poem I have ever written without ever intending to write it.
We Are Poets– This one is so close to my heart. For me, it describes the essence and purpose of poetry, in both love and war, freedom and oppression.
Little Miss November– While it was a grueling ordeal to pick ten poems from almost eight hundred, this list would be meaningless to me if not for this one piece. I don’t even have the articulation to speculate on why, but I always smile when I think of this poem.
