bio


art by sonjaye maurya


    Terrence Sykes is a GASP Gay Alcoholic Southern Poet, and was born and raised in the rural coal mining area of Virginia. This isolation brings the theme of remembrance to his creations, whether real or imagined. Though not traditional in his spiritual path, these traditional threads of his past are woven into his tapestry of writing. His poetry - photography - flash fiction, have been published in Canada, India, Ireland, Mauritius,Scotland, Spain, and USA.

   

 

L.A. Angel

...after reading Bukowski

hitched a ride
with an angel
in Topanga Canyon
riding on his back
straight downhill
except hairpin curves
heading to the Coast Highway

dead ahead - Pacific Ocean
right - Malibu
left - Santa Monica
(he requested)

....never been to Malibu
(I responded)

....don't bother
( he retorted )

let's go to the Santa Monica Pier
& ride the Ferris wheel
& fly in circles
my wings are getting tired
