News at Eleven: Hobbes depicted human life as "solitary, nasty,

brutish and short." Everything stems from this reality which is subsequently split into labyrinthine ramifications and my poems tap into this psychological slough. Nevertheless, I always strive to find avenues for perfection, pleasure and beauty, working my way up from a cold emotional wasteland, an indifferent universe where alienation, fear and death converge. At times it is just impossible to break free from the mire.
