A Poet


In 2003, I began to respond to Allen Ginsberg’s Collected Poems, 1947-1980, a poem at a time, with a poem. When I opened the collection this week, I notice that I didn’t sustain this project and thought it might be a good practice to continue.  Perhaps, in my lifetime, I will accomplish this.  If not, certainly a way to REALLY think about poetry.

I also like it when a sparse number of words can sometimes capture a moment or an experience.  While I’m truly an amateur when it comes to crafting poetry, I like it, as a form, to capture my thoughts.
