Let others come to you and figure you out or not. My poetry is personal, gritty to the bone. If it bothers you, maybe you have learned something from me. Or perhaps something about yourself. Keep an open mind and heart always when you can. Recently, a talented and promising poet from England Matt told me he was closing down his site here. That gave me cause for pause. Lets all be a bit more welcoming and supportive here. After all, its the differences in every one that make life interesting and worth while. Matt I hope you come back. Art and writing are essential to me, essential as breathing. I don't need to be paid to write or create.
