A compilation of chapbooks. Poems, Hive-Ku, and three very short stories.

I put out three chap books and one shorty in the past few years.  Folks wanted everything together, so I put out this compilation. Hence the name "Three Books" (the shorty is in there, making it technically 4 books, but it's so small it wasn't worth including in the title). I also used the three covers from the other books to create the cover here. 

Excerpt
LATENT TENDENCIES
(stolen from M. Barney)


I told her I was a street performer,
danced like Bojangles, sang like Leon Redbone.
She asked me to do Stardust,
so I tapped a pair of cymbals between my knees.
and begged her for a dollar.

Then I told her I was an astronaut,
a veterinarian, an unemployed mime.
She told me to do the "invisible box" bit,
so I neutered a puppy in zero gravity,
hunched my shoulders and begged for a dollar,
silently.

I told her I was a poet and a liar.
She told me not to be redundant,
then tossed me a quarter.
