I’ve held off for a long time, even though I know every ‘POET’ has to have a ‘WEBSITE’ on which they post randomly and/or regularly the “BRILLIANT SHIT” they just have to share with THE WORLD and/or the scraps from their literary dinners and/or who knows. I write for an audience, and for a long time — since coming to Minneapolis, pretty much — I haven’t known who my audience is. But honestly, whining’s gotten old. I’m fed by so many poets who put their truly brilliant shit out there, and it’s time I own up to my own sense of poetic dignity, ie, the belief that I have something worth sharing, and share it. So here you go, world. The internet is smaller and larger than we understand. So are we. If you read, you better give something back. Make something you’re proud of, and give it to us all. We need it so bad.
