One went to the door of the Beloved and knocked.
A voice asked, "Who is there?"
He answered, "It is I."
The voice said, "There is no room for Me and Thee."
The door was shut.
After a year of solitude and deprivation he returned and knocked.
A voice from within asked, "Who is there?"
The man said, "It is thee."
The door was opened for him.


If to be a lover is to be a poet, I am a poet;
If to be a poet is to be a magician, I am a magician;
If to be a magician is to be thought evil, I can be thought evil;
If to be thought evil is to disliked by worldlings, I am content to be such.
Disliked by worldlings is to be a lover of the true reality, more often than not.
I affirm that I am a Lover!

My show last week at Aviary Gallery in Jamaica Plain. Camera doesn't capture the vibrating floor, but you get the idea. I'm playing this Wednesday (September 10th) at the Middle East Upstairs. Info here if you are interested. You can view/listen to a set of mine from last January here.
