About Me

Do we get to choose who we are, or are we limited by where we live, how we grow up, what we do to earn money? My unchosen facts: I'm old, live in the eastern Mid-West US, grew up with a huge chip on my shoulder and used to earn money by serving the great Western god Oil. Now I'm broke. I have two daughters who are closer to me than I deserve. I'm married to a mystery and sister to another.
My chosen facts: I love good writing, especially when I do it. I read oftener than I write. I love reading other people's poetry - the kind that has hooks in it.

Thank you for your review. Yes, I agree with what you said about my uncles abusing me and my friend jon who committed suicide. At the time where I lived my best friend from school would notice all my scars from phy. ed. class and reported it to the principal and he called the authorities. After that I lived in hell until I was 18. My friend Jon killed himself on our graduation eve from high school and called me before and told me cause he wanted me to never forget him. Thank you for the words you expressed to me.
Life and light to you and yours!

I left Daniel a comment saying that ordinarily I take great stock in what he has to say, but that poem felt finished and wouldn't be changing. Some poems write themselves, they fall out, they clean up good, and feel right and comfortable. I called it a sort of siren song.

Daniel really pushes himself to improve his craft. Not that we aren't all exacting and hold ourselves to high standards.

I'm pretty sure he's improved some of my work somewhere along the line and I'm always glad for his sharp eye. I think maybe he just needed something outside himself to focus on. Something to direct his attention away from whatever it is that's got him sideways :)
