Ray Heinrich

Author's Bio

I'm a Texas technofreak who fools with computers. I've always been married and love dogs. I do not like republicans, but am willing to make an exception if you are truly gullible. I write poems for thrills, attention and because I get to be anything I want. Poetry lets me fool around with powerful symbols. It's like Walmart sold atom bombs. Besides poems, I like dogs, cats, most other not-human creatures, molecular evolution, electronics, and industrial design (toasters are good, but I am tired of chairs). I'm also related to a blue fish.
