"It's about words, and words are all I have…"



Stanley Kunitz said: Poetry is mythology

telling stories of the soul   It’s adventures

in time  & in history


The soul dives into a body   builds a house for

an Ego   Jettisons said Ego   Soul now a fugitive

Free of the squalid human   Until the next dive


Nothing useful rhymes with motherlode   Our

adjectives cloying   Our clichés grating    But

dare  hire a poet     if your soul needs saving
