Water-Skier Pastoral

great waves
unveil seaweed
awash in cash

paradise stock
heating, baking
enjoying burning desires

your degree
advanced forte
wisdom selling point
       - Ugo Burroughs

Austrian-born Ugo Burroughs has been publishing his poems and prose for over a decade via his own imprint, New Thoughter Press. Ugo started writing poetry and poetic literature as a natural extension of his earlier career as a vocalist and song writer for the German progressive rock group, Eloy. When the band started moving away from their heavy metal and progressive rock direction, Ugo decided to strike out on his own as a script writer for various Berlin TV stations. It was during the long wait between assignments that Ugo started to develop his penchant for poetry. At first, his self-published books were distributed at local cafes and bookstores. But their popularity grew to point where he required a distributor to help disseminate his books all over Germany. Ugo takes care to develop his prose in German, English and Castilian Spanish.
