are the poems from the Nineties.
early part of the decade still saw poems written on pieces of
paper. The latter part of the decade, with the establisment of
the website, saw each poem being written in cyberspace. I wrote
the following in 2000:
were a time of rebirth and re-invention, but in the nineties I
thought I had found love. The earlier poetry always seemed to
deal with pain and doubt, and when I met Pat in 1991 I thought
that the poetry would indeed attain the kind of themes with which
I had always dreamed it would.
But alas, the poetry became my refuge to the pain and terror I
experienced when I realized I had fallen too quickly into a relationship
which was just not going to work.
The Pat Poems are my group of poems dedicated to Pat. I call her
"the wild horse" whom I could never tame. I am still
a "long distance" friend, and I will never stop the
love in my heart for her, but some of the bleakest poems yet are
those I wrote for the relationship we shared. Most of the Pat
Poems were written in 1992.

are slowly arriving for this decade. I just put up a lot of poems
from 1992, including some which were already on Homestead
and some entirely new transcriptions. I'm working on 1993, 1994
and 1995 as well and have selected poems online. The index pages
for the years mentioned should be online by the end of the day.
