About Me

I am not a hero, possess no fortune, haven’t changed the course of mankind in any way. I am unaware of any whose life has been permanently altered by knowing me, and for the most part I know nothing about their lives today. On the other hand, I am no serial killer, thief, dictator , malingerer, or miscreant. I am not in jail or institution. Some were sure I would be. I am not dead. Bets were surely placed on how long Id last.

Why do you write?

Mine is a story the world could probably do without, but for me, it is one that must be told.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Neruda, The Beats, Rilke, Hesse, Dotsoyevsky, Nietzche, Camus, Not God by Ernest Kurtz, Kim Addonizio,
ad nauseum...ad infinitum...

Hey, thanks for reading my fragment of a story I don't remember inventing. It's always cool whenever somebody reads a piece and leaves a comment so I know what I'm doing right (or wrong).

Do I know you?

Thanks for going back and reading that story of mine, Jack. It's hard to find people to read the longer pieces, so I appreciate it.

J. Mykell Collinz – May 15, 2010
