Poet's Corner logo with multicolor feather quill

In the poet
K. H. A. O. S.
We have a mixture of old school storyteller and modern day griot
His body of work run the gambit
From the horrors of war , recounting his experiences of Vietnam and its after effects

In which He examines up close
The phenomenon of addiction and alcohol abuse that befell he & many of his fellow vets

To his involvement in the civil rights movement in America
Right up to today’s activism in the struggle for justice for his people
He serves on the board of a grassroots activist group called
Gideon’s Army for defense of children
They advocate for the reformation of the criminal justice system

Their goal is to dismantle the school to prison pipeline

To call for accountability
And provide the use of restorative justice in our courts

They also call for acquired immunity to be removed for police officers who have been charged with abuse of power , violation of civil rights,
other felony offenses

He calls himself an oral historian
As his poems and stories often detail glimpses into historical events that took place In past times
As well as today

K. H. A. O. S
Almost gleefully leads us through his youth as a black man born and raised in a racist systemic bigotry laden Jim Crow south

Even though there are many heart wrenching tales of evil and horrific stories shared

He seems to have emerged in tact to share these facts with us in works such as :
War stories & Drug tales
East side storytelling
And now comes the book

Plus many videos published on YouTube and Facebook

Collectively all his works are entitled
some which are periodically displayed on his Facebook blog
By the same name

He is fond of the phrases

Stay focused
Stay blessed

Every day is a good day


I see the God in. You
