In a fast paced world very few poets can make us find pause in their words and contemplate our own lives. Clifton is one of those few. I am better from reading his work.
This poet is amongst the truely great poets. Fame and fortune await this genius. I love the way he engorges himsellf in the words and the choice of emotion he needs to get across his messages
