When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…

… If we caused a fire, I framed you

He’ll slip through your teeth my friend

Don’t have to take another opinion

Don’t have to break the glass inside my shell.

… Don’t have to be the cause of a failure

Though I live for second best

Made an underlined theory of changes

What to say when your grey power to all the rest.

… Listen to the sound of facet mime

Blistered by the threat of run down undermined

Your florid walls around me all the time

Eye walls penetrate the crumbling sky.

… Wet my bed for a faith healer

I had to cry but I laughed instead

No one has ever brought you to meet him

wandering eye passing through your head.

… She doesn’t know where he came from

So tired of the temperate life he lead

He’s got tonight to think about tomorrow

Saves a prayer for the thankless silhouette!! …

I am a professor, a poet, an author, and an immigrant. I am the survival of many political and economical hardship. As a political immigrant, it took me a long time to master the English language and to come to terms that I can never see my family again. "THE PARTING FROM MY FAMILY WAS THE BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP THAN THE END OF OUR FRIDAYS!" My autobiography, "THE RAIN STOPS IN TEXAS" was published in 1997 by Eakin Press. It can be found in Amazon. As Ernest Hemingway says, write about something you know, most of my novels are about cultural difference of the old and new and American style of living compare to my home country. My poetry are in all forms. I write as they come to me. My first draft is always my last draft. "THIS IS MY WORLD, WELCOME!" "THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE!"

Let everybody be nice!
