@ Dick Jones, brian & nephiriel,
Thank you. The form, layers and presentation were my main concentration — the idea. So it was nice to have that appreciated. Now I need to learn to work better with words and sound — tough for me, but fun.
"I hate that ordinary citizen-readers have been made to feel intimidated by poetry, when in fact it can be so much fun, and so lucid, insightful and contemporary. In this I am very much on the Garrison Keillor culture-team. A poem is a conversation or an encounter with a deeply committed, highly entertaining friend."
-- Tony Hoagland (poet)
"A sad literary irony is poets who crave to be understood but don't write as if they do."
-- Sabio Lantz (a non-poet)
