In nuking my page I also nuked most of the stuff I had here. A couple poems and a story are all that remain.
Poem on Pascal's Triangle We were experimenting with sestinas and villanelles for 76-265. Being a math/CS geek, I decided to write this sestina.
Matthew This poem is about my friend Matt Devos, who taught me how to play bridge, and I missed him after he graduated so I wrote a poem about him.
A Love Swung Over J. Alfred Prufrock I love T.S. Eliot, especially his Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock poem, but I was in a weird mood and decided I needed to parody it. Unfortunately nobody in my workshop had actually read the original, so they didn't really get this poem either...
Gimme a Love Poem, and Hold the Ketchup This poem was published in the Spring 1997 issue of the Oakland Review.
b&w We had to write a sonnet for our Reading Poems class, and I had photography on my mind, so I wrote this... it was published in the April 1998 issue of Dossier.
Kanji-chan This is about my friend Carl doing his Japanese homework.
Thinking of You I was inspired by William Carlos Williams and Kenneth Koch for this one..
Numerology Brad Keryan helped me come up with most of the numbers for this one.
Ice Cream For Breakfast Inspired by, well, ice cream. :)
Resisting Arrest Written prior to my father's heart attack, oddly enough.
Wreckognition This was also published in the Dossier.
I wrote a lot more fiction than poems in college, volume-wise. This was my best work. It won an Adamson Award in the Spring of 1997. It's called Ballroom Barbie.
