Paul's work is best described as political and deadpan, 
delivered wryly humorously in his own style.
"power of words / humor - 
on the unthinkable, 
the unsolvable, 
to analyze, to digest, 
to give birth, 
to creativity and hope"

His work has been published in six books, 
in many journals, magazines, anthologies and poetry collections.
He has performed Nationally and Internationally ​​​​​​​

"I love'd your piece as always informal strong and intense with imagery and truth that makes you think. I love it."
"I love how you start with the personal life and mend it with the political."
