There’s a street in this neighborhood

Much like any of the others

It’s got one and two-story houses

Full of locked doors

And closed windows

They’re houses of glass windows

With curtains held inches open

By delicate hands and suspicious eyes

Always scanning the street

For anyone...

Basketball with Edgar Allan Poe was inspired by some horror classics, both in film and TV. Some shots, music, sounds, and ideas are direct homages, while others are more loosely inspired.

Here's a run-down on a few of them:

Hopes and regrets 
My phone and late night cigarettes
In 30 or 10
It's time to come in
Set the alarm
Head against the pillow
Sleep comes

I spend the night worrying.

Alarm rings
It's morning
Turn the lights on
It's still dark outside
Brew the coffee
Drink while last-...

“You are cordially invited
To the wedding of
Mr. David A. Romero
And Mrs. Macaroni and Cheese-

Please RSVP
Services will be held this July in Newport Beach.”

It will be a sunny day
On those sand-kissed shores
Where azure blue skies 
Will kiss deep blue waters

Today the Vests play ball

An outfield and diamond

Of dirt and dust

Pebbles and concrete

The Vests take the field in a city junkyard

As the Uniforms watch them from their trucks

The Vests


Community service workers

Everything from first-offense


To multi-o...

Everyone knows about sparks

You spark a match

And once it’s lit

Nothing can ever be the same

From friction to chemical reaction

A heat that spreads

On oxygen, it feeds

Changing anything in its path

Never to be the same

From dust to dust?

No, from form

To ash

“Once I did that…”

The walls of the chapel

Bear no cross

By the pews

In blue bonnets

The saints walk

Scattered in different families

Seventeen children join the lines

In Utah Territory

It is the year of our Lord


Learn you well

About Brigham Young

And the Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith

Right now

You’re in your life


In the thick of it

Thinking about

Moving forward

You know where you need to go

But all you can see is each obstacle in front of you

Each tree, signpost, ditch, and building

And even when your field is clear in all directions

You still carry...

I've been to many amazing colleges and universities over the years.

One of the questions I've been asked a number of times, both on the road, and around home is, "What's your favorite school you've ever visited?"

If this came down to only: 1) Awesome people and 2) T...
