I am the self-styled Drugstore Cowboy Poet. I am stranded in a stagnant backwater in the Exact Geographic Center of the Middle of Nowhere. My primary influences are singer/songwriters such as Leonard Cohen, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Ray LaMontagne and Hank Williams. I enjoy listening to Folk/Rock, Americana and Outlaw Country.
A poet is a artist who paints with words, directed by the endless music playing in his/her head. Sometimes, it may seem like I'm so far out there that I am in a different dimension. I am. However as my style has evolved, I find that everything that I write is based on actual experience, either my own, or those related to me. Seriously, nobody could make any of this stuff up....
The artist is vulnerable, with heart upon his sleeve, buck nekkid, if you will. But, as Sir Winston Churchill is reported to have said, "I have nothing to hide."

Flood of Emotions
Just cast off all of your troubles
Out into the ragin’ Springtime runoff
As the Flood of Emotions rush down
From the peaks to Shinin’ Sea
Just throw off all your worries
Out into the ragin’ torrent
Let the floodgates open up
And release those painful memories
Flood of Emotions, set to burst forth o’er the dam
Ragin’ River roarin’ downward
Sweeps away this little man
I am a survivor, after years of swimmin’ ag’in the tide
Washed away by my own tears
That o’er the years
