Set Me Down

 
 
 
no your arms can’t hold
this weight is old
it’s time to set me down
set me down

and I can see the bridge from here
but none can cross for all the fear
it’s time to set me down
set me down

on up ahead the trees they shake
the wind is strong, we cannot make
it’s time to set me down
set me down

the moon will set behind the ridge
my heart will beat it’s final pledge
oh it’s time
love, it’s time to set me down

set me down
set me down
oh it’s time to set me down
set me down

set me down
oh it’s time to set me down
set me down

set
me
down

Where Have You Been

 
 
 
when you’re nothing but a
washed up miracle

then she’ll show up

at midnight
on the balcony across
the street

black silhouette
warm window

only light on in the
whole damn building

and your bored, cigarette
smoke will twist

and her bored, cigarette
smoke will swirl

mingling together in a kind
hello, that doesn’t need
to touch

and you’ll think:

where have you been
all my life

and she’ll think
there you are

Come Back Quietly

 
 
 
I don’t know what I was expecting
a standing ovation?
or maybe orchestras blaring to life

letters in the mail reading: Congratulations!
a ticker tape parade maybe
or an award
a plaque would have been nice

even an open palm against my back
or a good, enthusiastic shoulder shaking
but no
as hard as it was, it was only another Thursday

and I made it through
to come back quietly

Captain Tomahawk and the Sky-Lion

Captain Tomahawk Cover

 

It is with great pleasure that I announce to you the official launch of my debut novel.

Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive and encouraging and kind to me for not just the past 35 days as I’ve counted down to this moment, but for the past 3 years that I’ve spent working on this book. You’ve helped make my dreams come true, and for that I am tremendously grateful. I have the greatest friends in the world, and I am one profoundly lucky novelist.

I hope you’ll read it, and I hope you love it.

You can buy a copy direct from my eStore or from Amazon and other online retailers.
