    I have read much of your work, sir.

    and I have enjoyed so much indeed,
    with special admiration, for the poems,
    A Face In The Crowd and I'm Dying In My Dreams.

    You have, in these pieces, and others that I read,
    a great capacity, to combine
    depth, brilliance and integrity.

    Thank you for the warmed pleasure, I was able to walk away with.

The weight on my numb limbs answer back
With the weariness of my dreams

Day after day you strike me with your words

Without it would be suicide, I ponder that

Somebody Else

Every so often I wish
I was someone happy
At times I dream of another time
another place, another body

Whether it be a man or woman
it seems not to matter
Only that I was young again
with the vigor to face the day...and night
