After My Death

Re: sowebohemian redux

Enjoyed your sojourn. Also enjoy "geographic" poems. Hollins Market…you put me there with you and I like that.

Re: inside

"…the obviousness of life…"

Re: that nobody will ever know

"...and any person in the street can be one, the old blind man with a guitar and a naked soup can, can have a most profound take I spent many days and nights reading the words of people poets I read the great ones and I read the ones that nobody will ever know" I spent a summer in NYC a while back. ...
