I'd like to share some art with you beautiful folks. I'm currently living in Saigon, Vietnam and there's a nice art scene developing here. This first piece is a portrait of myself (narcissistic tendencies confirmed) as a kind of surrealis...
Shout-out to the honest.cash crew. I've been thinking a lot about the timelessness of the written word. I'm going to share a few of my favourite quotes here -- I hope you enjoy! If you feel the urge, respond to this post with some of your...
On Thursday, December 20th 2018, our recently reappointed President Michael D. Higgins (affectionately referred to as Miggedly Higgins), signed the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill of 2018 into law. The final flourishe...
as the sun settled
you taught me the beauty
in transience; drifting
junk boats on the water,
as creatures we’re fleeting,
so let us collect all
instants of ecstasy,
gilded in memory,
ephemeral in deed:
the corporate colt-45 chants triple 6:
the mark of the much-maligned beast.
the spectre of ‘progress’; consistent and callous:
bulldozing the dreams of small business owners,
scorching the earth and upending the locals.
i sat and watched a kettle boil,
as several lifetimes whipped by
no heat passed through the coil.
i dreamt i was standing on a mountain's edge,
next i was clinging to a skyscraper's ledge,
i pictured myself suspended high u...
to sunshine tickling the flora,
the oaks and the pines
manifesting an aura,
the chills down your spine
run rapid like bobsleds,
in a race to the finish-
line up and be placed
on society’s conveyor belt
we lost ourselves
in a swirl of smoke;
in a hall of mirrors,
leaving the museum,
covered the floor,
on the trudge through
to the bierhaus,
we lost us:
now and then i revisit on occa...

"have you ever stopped to consider how many people didn't screw up for you to be sitting here tonight?"
mental health is a topic that is much more comfortable to avoid. it is a hard truth. as down as one may feel, i fully believe that t...
i rolled out of my bed this morning,
i admired the garden and picturesque awnings,
whether trough or crest - well, i'd still be yawning,
arabesque decor spells out "culture whore"
it's a sad fact that the wealthy ignore,
you must think i came down in the last shower
snatched straight off the stork
you’re oh so grown; holding all power
in the palm of your hand
THAT’S how you finesse a narrative
you can’t keep o...
what i pine to see
is more neo-soul
more humanists with
arms flung open wide
embracing those in need of shelter
like my ancestral brethren
i want to see them settled in…
“your own back yard”
no matter the muster
that moves the leaves
continues to blow,
no matter the bluster,
waving to greet you
and welcome you home
no matter the yearning,
It appears to be a form of universal intuition that sound can deeply affect our physiological and emotional states. We see this in the meditative trance state induced by the chants of Buddhist monks. One could claim that far removed from ...
darling do you realise,
the mist that swirls inside your eyes?
in the evening time, stretched wide to house the moon,
you grin and check my vital signs,
then trace the course of my palm-lines,
etched paths twist and turn, conver...
rorschach blotter soaked into bitter spittle,
ink loaded heavy in my pen -
and clumsy on the outlet,
thoughts drowned quicker than bricks inside a bag of kittens,
bound and tossed swiftly into winter's murky river,
