Profile of Gary Witt

In the opening years of the Twenty-First Century there was to be found among the fops and fools of the Starbucks coffee-houses one pudgy, well-fed paunch named Gary Witt, more lethargic than confused, and yet more confused than talented, who, unlike most of his boyhood friends who had received solid, pragmatic training at Northeastern A&M or Tri-Co ...

If in 15 years I'm as good a poet as you are, I will have mastered the art of writing poetry in less than 15 years.

You are, Sir, a man who, with shortness of words, points out, with both wit and wisdom, things that we often times miss ourselves, and always, always, you bring us back to the main thrust of this site...poetry. Well done!

Poetry - destructive force... Poetic a word during time soldiers are the whole arsenal... I very much liked your theory about a lion who sleeps on the sun as though easy... You have sharp eyes of the critic

I wanted to acknowledge I suspect for many, work and insight that Gary Witt is putting into his commentary on others work. In my own case I had written a several page deliberately difficult piece. Gary made three points - 1. that the poem was not in fact about the prima facie topic 2. the use of a verse derived in greek/roman epic style and 3. the use of faux style - the deliberate self portrayal of dishonesty. I had laboured for 10 weeks in bringing these elements into the work as an aid to my message. You can imagine my pleasure when I saw that someone had identified these.

It occurs so infrequently here, (since this is, as we all know, a site that is hugely populated by amateur writers) , that I've run across a poet who so speaks to my Soul, the one not scarred by Corporate America, the one that roams free, and is always ready to learn. Gary Witt is just such a poet. He writes so fluidly and so effortlessly about the things that we take for granted during our 9-5 days and nights, or the things that we allow ourselves to lose in the hustle and bustle of our neverending, and oftentimes, self-flagellating race toward the American Dream. Remember to dance, remember to breathe, remember to feel...all themes that Gary touches on in a way that sings. I'm so glad you're here, Gary. You speak to me. Thank you.
