Do you write poetry or are you primarily a reader?


Who (if any) are your favorite poets?

Byron is my current fave, "Don Juan" is so damn funny. I am impressed with Milton, weaned on the Beats and Brit Romantics, like various Chinese poets, use Dante and Virgil as a springboard for my historical indulgence, and I could go on.

What do you see as your primary goal in joining the group?

Self Aggrandizement

Where or how did you learn about our group?

I was looking for some interesting groups on the internet one day.


I wrote poetry as a youth, inspired mostly by nature, rejection of the faith of my childhood, and the interesting times in which our cradles rock, and never really stopped, just lost track of time.
