——There's not much I don't like about this quirky state of being we call life. "¡Better to be a flea bitten Dog, than a dead Lion!"
——I'll let the poems speak for themselves. Some are more polished than others, and many need rewriting. I'm not sure that any of the land marks that I've navigated make them more sensible or sense-full (sic). I do believe we dwell between a left and right brain that are in a constant tug to dominate our lives; and, therein lies our madness and genius.
——FP is an ocean of words-phrases-emotions,—I love this open forum and the wonderful people that share openly in it. I believe in competition through cooperation—you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours, primeval primate behavior. ¡Or, your lice are just as tasty as mine when we preen and groom each other! If you want me to review your work, send me an e-mail or comment when you review & I will review your work (I often review with a Haiku or a series of Haikus or a poem that I will later post.) Even if it takes me a bit to get to your work or respond to e-mail. ¡¡You may be plugged in, but I'm a knuckle dragging non-hirsute neanderthal troglodyte!!
——I never finished consolidating poems into just a few broad categories (cleaning, pruning and trimming them and placing them into Angst, Family, Humor, Haiku, Life, Love, Lust, Nature and Religion collections.) Many of them are still in dire need of a little TLC, but sometimes it's just better to things sediment and ferment. It takes a lot of time to look back; and really, a brush fire is required to remove all the dead wood..
——I thank those of you that have generously taken time to comment on my poems and provided me encouragement. Especially, for the continual inspiration that your work provides me. If I attempted to list all your influences it would be a very long list and would show how much that this web of support is a living thing—an intricate multi-stanza poem in itself. I like to think of the Fiction Press forum as a huge ocean that touches many shores, sometimes with small ripples and sometimes with large waves. An endless recurrence, shifting and changing, but never exactly repeating.
