Well, recently just for the hell of it I sent a copy of my newest chap to one of my personal favorite poets Philip Levine. Don’t know why exactly I did, I guess I just wanted to give my working class poems to THE working class poet as a sort of thank you. I was floored when I opened the mailbox and found a reply from him, I was even more floored to find out that he liked what he read.
You go through this writers life without regard to anyone but the muse… but validation from you readers mean so much. It also means a lot when it comes from someone whose words have done so much for you.
So anyway, Mr Levine has my chap, how about you? If you don’t head on over to
Scintillating Publications and pick up a copy.
