Advancing Backwards is a poetry collection with poems about a man who, nearing forty, and trying to understand how best to move forward, looks back upon his life and captures key moments as poems. There is a YouTube Channel with more of the video poems from this collection, but here are the my choices for this site.

MARRIED TO SHERLOCK - a poem about an overly needy partner

NEITHER WILL TOMORROW - a poem about dealing with death - again

CONSEQUENCE - a poem about why things happen

PAYBACK TIME - a poem about running out of luck

SLAP IN THE FACE - a poem about protecting your heart against love

MISSING YOU - a poem about longing

MEMBERS ONLY - a poem about pain being a relative concept

STILL WATERS - a poem about dating someone younger
