Selected Poems 1993-1994-1995
Most of these poems were written over two decades ago in my early twenties. Some of them were edited over the years; some were left to be standing, word for word, as they were written.
For more then two decades, I reserved this right to edit (polish) them as I pleased, for in the writer’s mind there is always an ever-doubting question burning with a paternal insecurity -- is the poem ever finished -- still, in introspect the execution may appear somewhat clumsy, naive -- the poetry of youthful angst. That is precisely why I want to preserve them now as they are…
These poems need to take a life of their own, for better or for worse, for they are the slices of time and space taken from my personal experience, from my dreams, my daydreams, my fears and my passions of the past, that inevitably shaped my present, and still forming the future. So no more finishing touches… no more edits. This is a spiral descent, a reflection in a crooked mirror, an instance of creation, a walk on a tight rope... a reverie of me…
Then again only time will tell whether there will be a revised addition.
