Artists, like the saints, know why they are receivers, their job is to summon every skill, every kind of attention and remain skinlessly alert in order, as Picasso said, ‘to find’.

The Genius Of The Crowd by Charles Bukowski

there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average
human being to supply any given army on any given day

and the best at murder are those who preach against it
and the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace

those who preach god, need god
those who preach peace do not have peace
those who preach peace do not have love

beware the preachers
beware the knowers
beware those who are always reading books
beware those who either detest poverty
or are proud of it
beware those quick to praise
for they need praise in return
beware those who are quick to censor
they are afraid of what they do not know
beware those who seek constant crowds for
they are nothing alone
beware the average man the average woman
beware their love, their love is average
seeks average

but there is genius in their hatred
there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you
to kill anybody
not wanting solitude
not understanding solitude
they will attempt to destroy anything
that differs from their own
not being able to create art
they will not understand art
they will consider their failure as creators
only as a failure of the world
not being able to love fully
they will believe your love incomplete
and then they will hate you
and their hatred will be perfect

like a shining diamond
like a knife
like a mountain
like a tiger
like hemlock

their finest art

I was born on the bayou in a small little South East Texas town. Now I live in Berkeley. There were many stops along the way. Favorite cities I've lived in include Amsterdam, Washington D.C. and Shanghai, China. Still, I'll only have one hometown- Orange, Texas. I'm a writer, performer, and people meeter. Since I'm a writer who needs deadlines, I'm starting the MFA Writing program at CCA this fall. This summer my play MANDARIN ORANGE can be seen at Capital Fringe in Washington D.C. and also at the San Francisco Fringe. Hope to meet you on my journey.
