By the shores of Ohmaha and Juno
General Lonely Heart was defeated,
A sad song was played inside the Heart home;
Disbelief in the cold act completed.
General Lonely Heart should have retreated;
Oft pride fools the best, oft pride does treason,
Heart gasped, his resources were depleted,
But far too late came the voice of reason.
Could he have rage’d for just one more season?
Only Fate doth know, he built the pyre,
The one which held Heart the lonely seaman;
To the west ashes soared from the warm fire.
The world goes on, and is unforgiving;
Heart, another victim of shameless living.

You can find me across social media platforms (including Twitter, Soundcloud, Bonoboville, Instagram, and Youtube) with intersecting content focused on ecology, environmental activism, Literature, and California culture. I read and write about plant-based living, with recommended readings, audio broadcasts and short documentaries. I like appropriate technologies like solar system and home gardens.
In my non-writing life, I like painting, fashion, yoga, and set design. I’m a graduate of Humboldt State University with a BA in English Literature, and was a costumer for the world-famous Humboldt Circus 2012-13. I love Poesy, spoken word and was Poetry Division editor for The Toyon Literary Journal.
