    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

So Much For Change

Back in the day
the smoke blacked tube
was what made the tv fuzzy
and the wind pushed
the antennae fifteen degrees off
clear reception of
the Purina sponsored nightly weather.
Last week I walked around the pond
with a pentagrammed five button box
that would have shamed Kreskin….
(44,239 sq. ft.) .
The busy bodied sanctimonious bitch
on our party line
gave herself away
with gasps grated by forty years
of closet smoking.
My Picasso son-in-law
draws masterpieces on a metal slab
and sends them to my
all in one fax, copier, scanner,
