Biography of Andrew Michaels

This is the part I hate, I would rather suffer
Shakspeare's slings and arrows, than post a biography
of myself but, here it goes: My favorite female poet is Sylvia Plath and my favorite male is Dylan Thomas,
I also favor Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, and Percy
Bysshe Shelley. As my birth-date reads I'm turning 51
this month and well, before I'm worm food I thought I
would test the waters of the world wide web... I'm a
whole lot new on the internet, as I always thought it
a very incapable speaking tool, yet now I know different. I preform and recite my poetry in several
coffee houses and have (self-published three books of poetry, I also studied and teach poetry at college as
that is where I learned about the net. I am also my own
worse critic as I take to my craft seriously (sometimes
too much) . I look forward to reading new material as I
adventure across the ever widening web. Your friend

In The Respondent Return

I shall state and pursue my testament
And as all men-I shall walk alone
In creation's reverence, her deepest woes
I shall stand upon the highest throne
Of quiet solitude, as the esculent stone
And I shall hold life's impassive throes
And at the dawn's first triumphant show
I shall affirm in its light, its perfect song
With this heart, this mind, this soul
