Poems – the dark side

Some may be dark, but mostly these are my attempts to be a serious poet.

18 – A look at how our perspective on life changes as we age

A Conversation with God – If you could ask God all the big universal questions, what might the answers be?

A Frosty Evening – A tribute to poet Robert Frost, my composition written in his style

Growl – An ode to rock and roll lamenting the potential loss of so many rockers that showed such promise, written in the style of Ginsberg’s “Howl”.  (See how many arcane rock references you can spot, i.e. “ebony canine” = “Black Dog”.)

My Shortest Poem – Three words

The Other Side of the Glass – A look at homelessness in downtown Toronto
