Evolving the mental framework and vibrations. Word Innovator. Introverted Loudmouth. He has performed spoken pieces for over 20 years. In 2005, he relocated from DC to Houston and has continued to self-publish numerous books of poetry, philosophy, and comedic abstractions and observations that, he feels, “follows consciousness where it must go.”

BGK, is short for Basically Gentle & Kind. It’s origins are in Hinduism, in the days of pre-internet correspondence, when the author would jokingly sign his name as BG Karma, referencing the Indian painter BG Sharma. 

Also known as Glenn Burns, BGK’s latest works include Overflow (poems and prose, released in 2017), Good Nature, I’m In Your Area (Revenge of The Napkin Poems), and Terra.

Two new books, Vast + Spacious and Next Age, are currently in production and expected for release in 2019.

Overflow is poetry akin to a psychic intervention. The mise-en-scène of BGK’s newest collection is the daily life, struggles, and creative process of the poet delivered as a surreal spate of meditations in metaphorical form and sometimes blisteringly honest confession. Each piece screws with the senses with its bright dark humor, unpredictable pacing, styles, and incisive clarity served up with jokes on you and everyone you’ve ever known.

The run-on sentence is not the problem. No sentence is the problem.
