More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

I've two books of poetry:
~ "All the Best Poets Sit in the Smoking Section" (2003)
~ "Visions of a Cheeseburger Goddess" (2004)
___________
When I first joined PostPoems in 2000 I went by the username "Poetryguy". Some of you old timers might remember me by that name.
___________
I'm single and would like nothing more than to find a muse to adore who would inspire more poetry.
___________
In case you didn't catch on from my poetry, I'm pretty kinky! Like as in BDSM kinky. I identify as a Daddy Dom. I am known as "DaddyO" in those circles so you may see some of my poems utilizing that pseudonym.
___________
I'm also very musical. Not all of my poems rhyme. But a good majority of them do. I'm inspired most by musical lyricists, not traditional poets. Some of my poems are rewritten lyrics to songs I enjoy. If a song I've written is a reworking of an original song I will certainly reference the original songwriter. If it is also a parody I will use the pseudonym Rex Songs (which coincidentally is also my karaoke name!)
___________
I like watching sports on television and keeping up with the stats for my fantasy sports leagues.
___________
I enjoy listening and researching music. I love making themed Spotify playlists. I even own my own online CD store.
___________
I dig movies, especially documentaries and quirky indie films. I wrote a screenplay even!
___________
I get thrills thrift store shopping too, finding rare items to resell online or searching out darling outfits for my many muses or favorite fetish models of mine.
___________
I sing karaoke, though not too sure you would say "very well." I have been told I have a "stage presence" and like to find songs that don't stretch my limited vocal range.
___________
I like the fine arts and I feel art of every kind demands respect and preservation. Art ain't worth shit unless it's provocative.
___________
I list photography as a hobby too, and have done my share of erotic work. I am certainly very much an amateur, but I like to think some of my work is sensual, entertaining and thought provoking.
___________
I like dancing but get frustrated with anything with too many moves, so the only dancing you might find me doing is a slow dance or the country waltz or two-step.
___________
Live theater is engaging, and frankly I don't attend plays as often as I would like. I'd love to be an actor but my memorization skills are horrid.
___________
Comedy clubs always make me giggle. Indeed some of my most admired people on the planet are comedians!
___________
In addition to poetry writing and word play of all sorts (both reading, writing and performing) I also spend a lot of time sharing my beliefs on social networking sites through memes and blogs.
___________
I am an unapologetic anti-theist skeptic who toiled in the confines of organized fundamentalist Christianity for the first 10 years of my adult life.
___________
Despite being a writer I'm not much of a reader. My Attention Deficit Disorder means anything longer than a magazine article is quite challenging for me.
