Biography of Karl Stuart Kline
I can offer no better biography than the one that was required of me when 'Going Without Peggy' was in the 2006 (published 2005) Pulitzer competition.
It can be seen in full on my web site, www.poeticat.com along with several of my poems, pictures of our cats and other relevant material.
2007- an adaptation of the Pulitzer biography was published by Leicester Review of Books in the UK, subsequently becoming one of their top ten visited pages for three months straight!

My other site, www.scaredsafe.org is designed with Human Trafficking in mind...!
July,2008 - The PoemHunter site has 'top 500' listings for the relative popularity of their poet members. There is one such listing for each country and another for the world as a whole. I am pleased to say that on that list, I have risen as high as the top ten (#10) for the USA and to #43 for the world.

How do you leave your love?
Twinned, as it seems, since birth
The spirit has left the flesh
And its' vessel is returned to earth.
You can never leave your love,
For that spirit is there to stay,
You might in time find another,
But wonder if you'll rue the day...
