And there it was!
My answer, that forever
and ever had a color, the bench cozy
draping of wonder-lazy horizon wide arms
around me, in full bellied Oxycontin bleached-
dream benevolence, like that last spring
when I danced with sun-devils,
danced gold-eyed, reflecting old devils;
that final park-silent solstice
my personal glass-roof renaissance

    When I read your poetry, I know it’s yours… even if I were to see a piece randomly graffitied to a wall downtown. Your name doesn’t need to accompany your words… this style is unlike anything I have ever come across. Hope all is well, J!

    • That is food for the soul, Eva. Certainly now, that I feel exhausted, and assaulted from every angle by far-too-human doubts about my writing. Still, I sit in amazement at your posting regularity and your drive, and it should go without saying you have adopted a mystical language as clearly yours as any WP poet. (= Best to you!
