Tobin James Mueller's Poetry

Tobin is a professional author, composer and Dramatists Guild playwright who has been publishing poetry since 1977. His newest poetry cycle, "Falling Past Love," is a journey of erotic joy and deep separation, and it is winning praise across the web. "Falling Past Love" reads like a series of short stories, creating amoving story of love nearly realized.

His previous award winning poetry cycle, "
Ash", has been expanded with a handful of new poems. "Ash" is a beautiful work that juxtaposes insightful biblical allegories with deeply personal events.

Tobin continues to post a selection of older poems and lyrics, as well as a first-hand account of his experiences living in downtown Manhattan on September 11, 2001: Journal from the Streets.

Also, as a lyricist and composer, please check out his online recordings and available CDs on his Feature Musician page.

J. Carrington Scott

J. C. is a young woman also living in New York City writing from difficult relationship experiences. These first poems are wonderful and we hope for more in the future:

In the end there was no heraldry
If passions could cancel worry
I loved you before
The child's been avenged
When she fancies her skirt
Sometimes you matter more
This cannot be.
