It's 2014, Palmer. I have a feeling you haven't changed your calendars since 2009.

Not to mention there have been other lists made over the years. -LP

Here are the names of some people whose work I have found to be particularly brilliant...in many ways:
Robert Charles Howard
Sue Anne Simar
Tomas de Faiote
these are some of the people whose poems I have found to be excellent examples of what hard work, love of language, obviously painstaking craftsmanship and dedication to this doesn't-have-to-be-sullen art can bring forth.... for us all to enjoy and admire....
I applaud them and thank them for their songs.....I believe their work shows just what using and celebrating one's intrinsic gifts while continually striving to refine one's art can accomplish.......
*more applause*.... and gratitude! !

Nope, JC, I'm not Rizzo. And anyway, I'm perfectly happy with my placement on Ovid's list. He put me just one notch below you, and said I'd have been higher if not for his preference for free verse. (Actually I do write free verse technically, but I know what he means - verse much freer structurally, and more conversational than my own) . Ovid's list is fair and objective. No need to create a persona to counter an assessment....I rather like. Thanks to both Ovid and Rizzo for recognizing the efforts of the formalists here. Everyone can't be in the short story business. -LP

I'm I the ONLY one who doesn't know who ANYBODY is?Delilah keeps making comments that I don't know who anybody is and she's right. But how would I know?How did you know that Rizzo was Lamont (assuming you're correct) . Is this all a joke and I'm the only one on the outside?
I just talk to the character. It's easier that way.
