Poetry Music Thoughts and Reflections



POST INDUSTRIAL SMS RENKU is produced by Rebecca Sullivan and Brett Gili. Taken from real life SMS interactions, the collaboration plays with the traditional conventions of haiku to highlight the tension between Feminine and Masculine, Nature and Industry, and Love and Destruction.

The print version of the poem is published in Rabbit. A journal for nonfiction poetry, Collaborations Edition 37

Sing here and then Take This Waltz here

Leonard Cohen Penned ‘So Long, Marianne’ Before Her Death

“And you know that I’ve always loved you for your beauty and your wisdom, but I don’t need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road.” – Leonard Cohen to Marrianne



Dance Me to The End of Love

FaceBook Clown


Chuckling chickens frenzied for food

tear at your tissues while knawing the nude

the touchless the tasteless the feasting fiends

are frying fairy floss at the face book scene


A raucous relaying the ringmaster roars

caging creations in lions clause

befriending offending unfriending and stalking

managing misfits as fingers do walking


The pretty the precious the profile ping

pernicious a postman runs into the ring

pitting a picture prepared for the masses

to piss off the misses and make of a mattress


The listlessly linger by quaking relation

a choir of quiet quailing quotations

while noisy notations and slanderisations

orchestrate the applauding to standing ovation


Crows to the claws and the clown crowns in

the ring master chimes as the fat lady clings

the faceless the balless the cackling clown

is juggling jelly with a facebook frown

my friend Solo


in three feet follow

feat only

the sanctuary

a slippery slide

sure footed defeat


not my feet

dirty headed hat

bail back to cap

seep and spill

sound withering



felling in falling

falling in filling



the sanctuary

seals shoes


tempted toes tilled



feat only solo


the sanctuary

steals shoes

three feet on three feet

shoe sink

feat sealed
