Here is one of his many poems you can find on his website:


He sits at the slot machines
His eyes red
Slumped against the chair
Pulling the lever
And again
And doesn’t notice
The cocktail waitress
The spinsters
The college students
The amateur gamblers
Which surround him
Their voices
Their laughter
Their footsteps
All he sees are the numbers
Which dance before him
He is
Dead to the world
A hand
Merely a hand
