    oh bravo!! this was so full of life and angst and confusion and sadness and power.. s full of so many things.. why is it that there is no visionary in the publishing industry,, why is there no patron of the arts?? no clearing house for great art,, written from the heart and absorbed into the blood like a quick shot… why is there no one in the industry,, that publishes for the love of the words,, and not in pursuit solely of the almighty dollar???

    i am soooo looking forward tothis series.. as i mentioned before i a do not want to feel influenced by any one poetic attitude,, so i stay away from single poet compelations,, and biographies ,, etc.. but this will allow me to savor a bit here and a bit there… just the way i like it… thank you….

    This seems very familiar, I think I must have read it/heard it before. Good images, bristles with rage.

  6. Scot says:

    He told it like it was–he was a poet of the streets–nothing fake here as we find in many poets of today
