About Me

As it is the great leap of faith in a person's spiritual life to assume that one's life is the text; and by that I mean the text that we must decipher, by the events and experiences that are our experiences, to find evidence of the sacred and of the profane, so too is there in poetry (which is why it makes about as much sense for me to say I'm a writer as it does to walk around saying I'm a breather, I'm a urinater, I'm a thinker) a need to examine, define, interpret, and feel our way into the life of the poem--the centers of word and image that recur, or glare, or reveal themselves--so that we may know the poem or the events deepest truth.
