    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

Suicide

In one month from tomorrow,
It’ll be two years,
Since your story ended,
And I cried all those tears.

The word they used was suicide,
That’s what the experts say,
I just know my life,
Was forever changed that day.
