About mePoet, writer, reader, pacifist.

About my library"My poetry is, or should be, useful to me for one reason. It is the record of my individual struggle from darkness toward some measure of light." - Dylan Thomas

"Poets are damned...but see with the eyes of angels". - Allen Ginsberg

“Conditioned to ecstasy, the poet is like a gorgeous unknown bird mired in the ashes of thought.” - Henry Miller

“Lonely people tend, rather, to be lonely because they decline to bear the psychic costs of being around other humans. They are allergic to people. People affect them too strongly.” – David Foster Wallace

"Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I went nowhere, I knew no one, I did nothing." - S. Townsend Warner

"Don't run after poetry. It penetrates unaided through the cracks." -Robert Bresson

"Success, as in adulation, adoration, or the ole spondulix, is a pitcher of cold spit when it comes to poetry." - Richard Derus

"He told himself he was inching closer to the poem of no return." - Steve Erickson

"Nothing written for pay is worth printing. Only what has been written against the market." - Ezra Pound

“The poet makes himself a seer by an immense, long, deliberate derangement of all the senses.” – Arthur Rimbaud

"I've always been drawn to tormented people full of contradictions." - Antonio Tabucchi
