Tired Scenes From A City Window is my first collection of poetry. It features beat poetry, art poetry, modern poetry and a lot of other stops in between. Influences are Kenneth Rexroth, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and more. 

About 3 months ago I decided to try and change my life for the better. I was working in radio, selling advertising and little pieces of my soul were dying ever day. I was killing myself and wasn't happy, neither was anyone around me. So I took a leap. It's sucked being unemployed but I've been working hard trying to get this published. It will all be worth it if I can make this happen. 

Here's a short selection of the type of things I write:

Naked streets,

               I walk,

       Without a veil;

                     Dust

                    Gathered on my

                                           lips

                              & at my feet;

                                     Cigarette butts

                              & empty bottles

                                            litter the

Alleyway;

             Used cardboard boxes

   Line

      The

         Half painted,

                     Boarded doors.

               The American Night,

                                               Filled

                          With voices bellowing,

                                       & hands outstretched—

                    Begging for change

                                     &

                                Alcohol.

Risks and challenges

Risks include working with the publisher. I've never done this before so there may end up being roadblocks with the publisher getting the book published and sent to me of which I'm not currently aware.
