Gutter Kisses and a Hug on Garbage Day

ISBN: 0976947609 | 978-0976947608

This collection of poetry is definitely dark but you will find no ghouls, goblins, or vampires hiding out. These poems come alive from the depths of the binding darkness that is found in all of us. Travel down the spiral to visit the barren heart of depression and the scattered mind.

The dry humor of these mostly biographical tales of sorrow, contradiction, twisted relationships, split personalities, along with unique views on love, marriage, and death will have you unsure whether to laugh or cry. Sadness can be paralyzing, madness can be hilarious and together, they will be inspiring.

Temp Words

ISBN: 1492399450 | 9781492399452

I started writing this book in 1996 when I was working as a temp in San Francisco, mostly as a receptionist. I was grieving the loss of my brother and took whatever opportunity possible to write underneath the fluorescent lights. My brother’s death rocked my paradigm and forced me to face the impermanence of our lives. Thoughts, feelings, experiences, people, faith, relationships, politics, identity, things (except maybe plastic bags) change; nothing is static. temp words is a journey through impermanence from my perspective as a mixed race woman of color in America. This is my edge, this is how I navigate through life: one moment at a time.

Twenty percent of the proceeds from temp words go to MISSSEY, a community-based organization in Oakland, California, whose goal is to eradicate the commercial sexual exploitation of our children.

No Guns, No Knives, No Personal Checks

ISBN: 0978575105 | 978-0978575106

Driving a cab has been rated the most dangerous job in the United States, surpassing the risk of being a police officer. At the same time, it is most entertaining. Especially in San Francisco, cab passengers are from diverse and contrasting walks of life: the rich and the poor, the sorry and the psychotic—drug dealers, gang members, French tourists, hookers, derelicts, transvestites, muggers, and even other cab drivers. People sit in the back seat and share predicaments, a snippet of their lives. Sometimes a snippet is too much.
