    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

First confession

When we were six years old
innocent to life’s evil
partial to youthful mischief
ignorant to confession

Our teacher one day told us
to go to the parish priest
for our first confession of sin
perhaps then we may start anew
