Delightful? A few poems are. Poignant they all remain, & dog me.


With his one-of-a-kind poetry style, Dean trains his unique eye on theend of theworld, or of humankind,death,thedestiny of humanity,theSecondComing &Judgment.

There is no escape like reading! What about reading about what one may never escape from? Dean’s words took me into that darkening day. He used the color of meaning to paint the way.


Yet, I never felt like running from it. I wanted to remain, to hear what the poet, writer, musician had to say about the decay, and mores.

Artist: Richard Manoakeesick Artist: Richard Manoakeesick

Dean’s words string true, even if they bite you. Might as well face the music he presents, it feels healthy.

Dog is God backwards, but I have a feeling Dean knew this when tempting us with his title.

Working on “Finding a Balance”

Lauren Scott- “Finding a Balance”

Originally posted on Baydreamer:

Dear Friends,

I am embarking on a new adventure and this is an introduction. My second poetry book, “Finding a Balance” is almost ready for publication and it’s nice to not be such a novice the second time around. This book isn’t just about sharing more poems I have written. It’s not only about me. It holds a deeper meaning; the new adventure part. The proceeds will be donated to an organization for a purpose close to my heart and my family’s. I’ll begin, though, with a back story…

Part I:
After three years of abdominal pain and ongoing tests, on October 4, 2012, our daughter, Stephanie, was diagnosed with Primary Schlerosing Cholangitis (PSC). She was 21 years old. Her doctor was the head of the Gastroenterology department and was extremely competent. He didn’t beat around the bush. He told us this wasn’t good. Below is a brief description:

Your hand
Held hers
But your eyes
For mine
Sleight of hand
Shifting focus
You a player
With a pocket
Full of hearts
A romantic magician
With a 52 card deck
Full of trick plays
And when you called
For my final bet
I went all in
Losing everything
You turned my heart
Into a spade

he was tired of being nice
so he moved on to better things
hooked up with some of the boys on
thursday night south of eighteenth street

his woman wasn’t happy with some
of the choices he was making
proceeded to tell him so friday morning

he bought a handgun and spent
his saturday at the pistol range
clearing his mind by repeatedly
reciting bang bang bang

on sunday she sat polishing her rosary
wearing dirty white gloves
church bells ringing in the distance

when monday night mob turns raw
he slips into a brand new world
picking up instincts and aiming
to get a clear shot at something

Loot the Louvre!

Daily_scene_in_the_Louvre - Samuel ErhartDaily scene in the Louvre by Samuel D. Erhart



“Out of the closets and into the museums, libraries, architectural monuments, concert halls, bookstores, recording studios and film studios of the world. Everything belongs to the inspired and dedicated thief…. Words, colors, light, sounds, stone, wood, bronze belong to the living artist. They belong to anyone who can use them. Loot the Louvre! A bas l’originalité, the sterile and assertive ego that imprisons us as it creates. Vive le vol-pure, shameless, total. We are not responsible. Steal anything in sight.” ― William S. Burroughs



Have you ever noticed the strange coincidences which pop up in your life, sometimes on a daily basis, random little things which… after a pause or two for thought… make you wonder about certain aspects of life, your aspect of life, your particular fragment and all its facets in this giant crystal ball…
