Mr. Nice Guy. August 14, 2018

Love is easy. Relationships are hard. One you fall in and out of. The other requires constant work and maintenance from both.

Made You Look. August 10, 2018

I always do my best to perform for an audience. And I disappoint myself when if I feel like I didn’t live up to my own expectations, even if I do net laughs.

Unproductive. August 6, 2018

I find it difficult to not keep myself productive. It’s an unhealthy mentality, for sure. I’m happiest when I produce. But I’m also at my most vulnerable when I can’t, when I come up short, or when I’m simply unhappy with whatever I’ve offered up to an audience. So I often find myself stressing out […]

From a Certain Point of View. August 2, 2018

I do not like myself. I have great difficulty accepting that there are those who love me, who believe and trust in me. To me, my successes are failures.

Moment of Clarity July 5, 2018

Y’ever wonder if maybe, just maybe, we kinda deserve him? Maybe the truth of America is that we’re a country of deeply flawed individuals failing our way to success. We’re taught alternative facts in school. We’re told stories and sing songs about the strength and beauty and equality and liberty to be found in our […]

Disconnect July 4, 2018

The start of this just started itching at me one day. Just this general vibe and phrase I kept thinking over and over after seeing a flood of nonsensical socio-political posts from idiots of all shades. And for some reason, I decided to write a poem. Now I can’t seem to stop. Yay? Available in […]
