POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Life would be easier if I did not have the urge to write. Or if I could confine it to the nicer things in life. But in the middle, comes a font of pain that remains from deeper things in my life. These things must be expressed, pinched even like a pimple that needs to be drained - or I think I would go quietly or not so quietly mad.
