    Rusty is, predominately a writer of children's poetry and has made the fatal error of letting us know, here and there, that he is an adult. But that is really only a biological matter. At heart Rusty is peter Pan, but with an enormous (and sometime, wicked) sense of humour. He does not so much, remind us adults of children's innocence, whith it's bemusement at the world, it's pathos and it's (sometimes, inadvertant) humour, he remind us of the human condition itself; in all its triumphs and failings.

    Oh, and he has also provided me with moments of hilarity that really hurt. I shall be sending him the hospital bill in due course.

    My compliments, Rusty. Your work is to be envied by all wannabe poets out there. It has paled even some of the greats in my mind. If you ever publish, I will be sure to snatch you right up. Your wonderful insight and hilarity, your wise way with words is so very impressive. I don't think there is anything you could write that I won't enjoy reading. Your work is to be cherished. Thanks for the great read.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading your poetry. Have you ever considered trying to publish a child's poetry book?

    Hi there, sweet poet man -
    I've just spent over an hour reading your wonderful poetry. I didn't realize I had missed so many of them. I love your humor and charming insights into the naive mind-workings of a child. And your adult poetry shows yet another facet of your talent as a writer. Thank you for sharing your voice, and your warm friendship, with me and everyone else here.
    Many hugs,
    CJ

Best Poem of Rusty Daily

They Shoot Horses. Don'T They?

Talcum and ointment
suspend the rash
and the safety pinned cloth
refreshes the happy drool.

The crackle of starched white
accompanied by an antiseptic cloth
and another ‘accident’
fills the biologics bin.

From that to this,
chronicled in Kodak
Instamatic and digital segues
in a book to be revealed
by the post mortem dig.

I once heard,
“They Shoot Horses. Don’t They”?
