Whispering Beyond

  1. While my eyes are searching, something else is urging, tugging at my heart.
  2. While my mind is thinking, something else is springing, struggling to impart.
  3. While my ears are listening, something else is glistening, sparkling in my soul.
  4. While my fingers touching, something else is clutching, marking up the holes.
  5. While my reason strengthens, something else does lengthen, beckoning through space.
  6. While my logic hardens, something else is ardent, reckoning with grace.
  7. While deduction tightens, something else does brighten, whispering beyond.
  8. While my body’s proving, something else is moving me to e’er respond.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
