Poetry and Short Stories

I was active in writing poetry between 1993-1996. The beginning of this period was associated with a kundalini experience. This was about the time that I started losing interest in the academic life as I later recorded in Why I am not a Professor. In 2009 and 2010 I experimented with putting two of these poems to music and video.

I also put several to static pictures. I'd like to do more sometime. I plan to put more links here soon. The video poems owe much to the genius of the late John Barry.
