    Dear Ashley,

    thank you for their poems. I appreciate their emotional honesty and directness, and their raw, visceral response and struggle with technique. To what extent have you looked at poems that scan, but which either forego rhyme, or use it more subtly than you have now? I am very interested in how poets write, as well as what they write, since we tend to develop both in varying degrees as we develop as a poet.

    If you would like more detailed comments, I would be happy to leave messages for you. It would be a pleasure, and I would love to see more of your work.

    yours

    Phillip Ellis

Finding Ashley

There was a girl that I knew well,
And where she went I can not tell,
A bright face and humor great,
I loved her every trait,
Though I paid her no attention,
I’d buy her back at any pention,
I’ve looked for her everywhere,
That eight year old without a care,
Now I’m lonely and going astray,
