Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. Your poem “Normal” prompted me to reflect on what normal means to me, which is quite different from how the poem’s speaker views it. For me, normal is good. There’s no drama, no conflict, freeing me up to be creative. We humans are a strange and varied lot, aren’t we?

  2. What’s normal, normal to one person doesn’t necessarily seem normal to another 🤔😉

  3. Love your poem, Mark. It expresses well the meaninglessness of our lives when we succumb to the norms dictated by society.

  4. great poem, Mark with a terrific punch at the end

  5. not expecting the poem to end like that………sadly true. normal is not something I stive to be 🙂

  6. Interesting and puts a new perspective what “normal” is. As a Libra, I appreciate the quietness of normalcy but not as dark as in this particular poem.
