Am I a poet, a light weight, a semi-heavy weight, a know-nothing, a pretender, an almost, a middle-weight, a fluff, a reality, a songster, a magician (pretend), a bard of the ha-ha clan, a bad-ass performer, a heart-evangelist, a minstrel, a skald, a scop, a rhapsode, a wordist, a poetaster, a poetatoo, a word writer, a song writer, a lyracist, a diddler, a doddler, a doodler, a listener, a journal writer, a note taker, an improviser, an open-ear responder, a receptionist, a word-wrangler, a scribbler, a creator, a recognizer, a maker, a guy with a fountain pen and a notebook spending too much time at the computer . . .

Like a house balanced on the tip of your tongue, my poetry is self-contained to this place.
Making things is my disposition, a carpenter of air.
