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.
