Everyone seems to have a melodramatic, well-polished, inspirational elevator speech about why they started to write, what inspires them & keeps them writing, which most lie detectors concur – are somewhat grayish!
But since everyone needs a story, a historic narrative to applaud & sigh at, this is mine.
I am the mad scientist of insomnia, the Jekyll & Hyde of paper, pen, computer & beer. For me, more than an art, writing has always been an experiment & every one of my poems is a newly created version of Frankenstein. I pull pieces, body parts, thoughts, images, sparklers & broken stars from everywhere. I put them on paper, have them electrified & bolas! A poem comes to life.
