How’d you end up here?

About 20 years ago, I invited poets and writers to share their work with the world via my tiny website. This was before social media made it simple to share and connect. Most of these folks I met through an open-mic night hosted at a place in Lindenhurst, NY, called Munchaba. It was a singular experience, being able to read poetry to a group of talented authors and unsuspecting bar patrons.

I’ve updated the paint on these pages, but their words remain their own. If you were one of these writers and want me to take your work down (or even add to it), just let me know at or find me on Bluesky. Thanks for being a part of my site for two decades.
