Philosopher’s Stone Poetry: 2 Year Anniversary Reading

Last week was the 2 year anniversary reading with Philosopher’s Stone Poetry at Gravlax. We had a great lineup and a great crowd. There was poetry, music and libations!

It has been an honor to get to know the fellow poets and artists involved with Philosopher’s Stone Poetry. Thank you to Chase Maser, Sergio Cacciotti and Amanda Ortiz for putting together such a great group. I look forward to more awesomeness in the future.

Here are a few photos from the night, courtesy of Dan Wynick. Thank you everyone who has participated and keep writing! ♥ Nisi



Dozy Times

Dream mad please,

better quick like

frantic worship

over what can be

cool drool mist,

smooth sordid chants.

As time whispers,

water will

reveal the storm.

Gotta Start Somewhere

If you are in L.A… Check out 2 of my mixed media collages hanging @venicegrind coffee shop in Mar Vista. Props to @mitchelitoorquiola for hooking it up (artwork featured above mine). Find the artist and the cafe on instagram.




In Which I Fantasize About Blowing Up This Place

Quick to criticize without solution
Broad ideas, narrow minds
Wander in delusion pools of
Occupancy, wonderful
While there is no vacancy
Threats remain and I do not care
Cut the leash and endure this
Yr fresh hardships without me please
No need to have me here when
Miserable technology fails
Blue circle watching
Becomes my full time job
I finished hours ago but
There is no end in sight unless
I cut the cord myself
Set it all free
