Poetry is a conversation.
Briefly with the world, mostly with myself.
I'm not required to write everyone's truth. Just my own.
Often I see things others don't
Poetry is personal. Its my way of making sense
 of what is at times,  none-sensical--
or, just plain nonsense.

Finally, poetry is a recording of facts:
the fact I was here, that my life mattered to me,
that I, my words and ideas matter.
Its my wish to preserve, to make myself indelible

Pour your soul onto the paper...
I dare you.
