The book The House of the World has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and is now available on Amazon.


We are what we are.
There is so much God in us.
We must have faith in ourselves.
Inside where the atoms live.
Hymns that course
through the tributaries
of our veins.
We are art.
Imprinting our dreams
on the rocks and slopes of earth.

I pay homage to Buddha,
Jesus and Mohammed.
They encircle me with wonder.
Nations flock together
as neighbors on my street.
They are proportions of a
miraculous geometry.
What is me
could not have been
without them.
An American foundling.
The proof of my life
is their laughter,
the way they fall in love,
put up sails
and go out to sea.
