Love & Misadventure.

Writers often joke that between their lover and poetry, their lover makes a close second. 

I’m not pulling this out of a movie, I promise; I have literally witnessed someone say this to his girlfriend. Yes, he was being ironic. However, as a writer myself, I understand why those two can be put together.

Like an authentic lover, poetry is soul food.

A Letter for You.

Like a real letter. Like the one someone writes thoughtfully by hand, licks the envelope, checks the postal address and sends it off? I hope so, but I think we’re in the minority. We letter writers.
