As some of you know, I've spent the last year submitting poetry to a variety of organizations holding contests. I currently have a submission in with Matter Press' The Journal of Compressed Arts. I'm not sure if I'll win the competition, but I was pleased to receive an email inquiring about the use of my "compression statement" (part of the cover letter) on the Matter Press blog.
You can check out my compression statement at:
I'll keep everyone posted on this and the other competitions! Oh, that, reminds me: I didn't win the Tennessee Williams Festival Poetry competition, just follow the link if you'd like to see who did win! Congrats to each of the finalists!

What's good for one isn't necessarily good for another.
Attempting to control the hearts and souls of the masses through force and injustice only forces the seeds of dissension to grow. History has taught this lesson repeatedly. Perhaps, we'll learn the lesson this time.
Some Nights by FUN
(*Please Note: We the People of the United States of America are citizens of a Constitutional Republic, a.k.a. The Republic. We are not a direct democracy like some believe. By the Constitution, we are a Representative Democracy. We elect representation to defend the Constitution and the People. We placed our faith with government in the people, not in monarchs, not in career politicians, but in the People.
You want changes? Then, it is time for you to take an active interest in the good of the Republic. Do not leave governance to career politicians. Run for office. Vote for third, fourth, and fifth parties.)
This November vote them all out!
Clean Out Congress or Bust!
