PH is what I do because I can't talk basketball with my neighbors. It is nice to know there are thousands of people out there reading and writing and thinking about poetry. At least I hope it is not just one person sitting at a keyboard making all of this up.

In the few offerings Callie Carroll has posted here to date one glimpses a rare lyrical ability. The delicacy of subject-word relationship is exquisite, the imagery cogent, syntax poignant and powerful. A poet for future visits for sure! Rgds, Ivan
