Poetry Drive-by: Glance

October 11th, 2015

the fresh breath
of morning
is
sweeter
and
sharper
by far

when
my
first day’s
glance
is
of

you

Poetry Drive-by: Canyon

September 20th, 2015

i sat
on the edge
of a great gaping canyon
with my feet
dangling
far out
into the slippery space below

not concerned
i know
when i stand
stretch
extend my legs
leave this canyon
far behind
i know

not worried
this canyon
nothing
compared to my destiny
nothing

impatient even
ready to catch up with my life
just wanted
to think things through
thoroughly
as always

thought it through
went around the world twice
in my mind

saw it all
with singing sad eyes
conclusion
no matter
how great a stride

there are places
no one
can
go alone

i sat
thought
sighed
and
shrugged
stood
stepped out
over my dead dreams
and
walked on
toward
my
sun

Poetry Drive-by: Playing In The Sand

September 9th, 2015

    playing in the sand

i
remember
i
was
five
playing
in the
sand
alone
by the road
with my
fingers

a
bluebird
flies over
i am
amazed
wished
i could
do
that

the
bluebird
dances
by
with
smiling
violet eyes
winks
and
glides
off again

leaving
me
alone
with the
sand
and
my
dreams

Pound Of Flesh - The Movie

May 14th, 2015

So if you follow my FB page or Twitter, you’re no doubt already aware that a movie I wrote, POUND OF FLESH, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, opens tomorrow. Here’s the trailer for it:

And here’s a interview with director Ernie Barbarash Talks Pound of Flesh | The Action Elite that you must read.

And some good reviews:

REVIEW: Pound of Flesh (2015) « Kung Fu Cinema

And if you missed it, JCVD was on Conan a few nights ago to talk about our movie, show a clip and, as an added treat, he reenacted his iconic dancing scene from KICKBOXER. Here’s the full episode:

Full Episode - Mon. 5/11 - Jean-Claude Van Damme, Nina Dobrev, And Musical Guests The Word @ TeamCoco.com

So after years of writing scripts (and, thankfully, often getting paid for that) and sometimes seeing my work on the big screen but uncredited, this is the first official movie with my name on it… and as a long time martial artist who grew up watching BLOODSPORT again and again and again… I couldn’t be more chuffed that a martial arts legend is starring in it.

It opens tomorrow, May 15th, in select theaters and on VOD. Please tune in and I thank you all.
