    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

I Sit Here And Read The Signatures

I sit here and read the signatures
on an elevated plaster cast
that supports a splintered tibia,
remembering the ill advised
reason for its creation.

As a young, inconsiderate boy
the ant hills were the most fun.
A stick or a kick delivered
a few minutes of amusement,
watching those little critters
rebuild the farm.
The little blue fallen eggs
became yellow window art.
You could get a new free bunny
after chasing off mama.
Ground squirrels
and water hoses,
what fun.

The late morning air
was so thick
it was like trying ...
