    I can feel the rhythm of the deep South and the banjo blues of the wonderful lyrics.

    I am happy to come across your works dear poet.Your words comes out straight from the life you lived. My sincere tribute to you.

As You Leave Me

Shiny record albums scattered over
the living room floor, reflecting light
from the lamp, sharp reflections that hurt
my eyes as I watch you, squatting among the platters,
the beer foam making mustaches on your lips.

And, too,
the shadows on your cheeks from your long lashes
fascinate me--almost as much as the dimples

[Hata Bildir]
