Everyone's voice I have ever heard has been an influence on my writings. If you don't take a piece of everyone you meet with you, then what was the purpose of meeting them? In my writing styles I have a very open-minded opinion of what makes art good. My main influences are as follows below. If you have never heard of these poets I STRONGLY recommend reading them and seeing what they are all about...

  • Anne Sexton
  • Sylvia Plath
  • Emily Dickenson
  • Jack Kerouac
  • Walt Whitman
  • Jim Carroll
  • Kurt Cobain
  • Jim Morrison
  • Bradley Nowell
  • Tupac Shakur

You may not expect to see the last 5 there as "poets." However, they are some of the most introspective, intense writers of the late 20th century. Read some of their lyrics or their poetry and argue with me!!!
