About my Gravatar…

Recently, a reader I have never met asked me why I had chosen such a distorted, disfigured image to represent me not only for this and other e-mail addresses and sites, but also for the cover of my first book, after which this blog is named.

She asked me because she believed that sarcasm and cynicism aside, my poetry belies a very sensitive and loving person.

I thanked her for that, but felt compelled to point out that I was also a notorious and incorrigible pervert and further went on to explain that in truth, my gravatar is a reasonably accurate representation of my physical appearance ever since I was attacked several years ago at a mall by an angry mob of anti-pit bull demonstrators who severely mauled me, permanently disfiguring my face.

I hope this clears up any confusion my gravatar has created by not implying that it was not a figurative representation of an alter-ego.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
