"Normal Life" and "Essential Services"
CHAOS A Poetry Vortex, an eclectic, eccentric, and unique collection of works by 104 poets, includes two of my pandemic poems, "Normal Life" and "Essential Services".

If you pre-order CHAOS A Poetry Vortex by Friday, September 4, Bards Against Hunger will donate 25 percent of all profits to Feeding America.

"Blue Crime Matters"
"The Portland Police are guilty of numerous crimes--many of extreme violence--for which they have not been arrested, charged, and/or prosecuted. Like police across the United States, they constantly and consistently act as if the law does not apply to them--from the smallest infraction to flagrant disregard for human life and safety. Many of their actions would be considered war crimes if they were used against anyone outside the United States."

They need to be held to account. I examine the Portland Police Department's actions in my first article on The Big Smoke.

The Big Smoke is "a capital city for the 21st century in America. We're all about cutting through the noises and mazes to have a distinctive cultural impact and connect people with things they'll love."
