  • HATCHET'S HABIT & ME

    by Craig Wells
    I am the poem written for an audience of no one. I have been a disciple of moveable spirituality and literature. From Christianity to Buddhism to Native American mysticism, from Tupac to Stravinsky, from Voltaire to Hesse, I embrace whatever works. I have been more dedicated to the love of writing rather than romance. These poems reflect a life willing to discover the true nature of myself and others I encountered visually or personally.

Life is raw and ever-evolving, and we always seem to put ourselves last overall. Time proves to be quite relentless. I hope that we all find common g... more
