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...................
