Hah , that's tuff man although something good did come out of it. I'm not sure any poet I love to read has ever came into Connecticut, i read all the dead ones, and Mark Twain is the most popular writer that ever came out of Connecticut. Ive been looking to find " Sixty -Seven Poems for Downtrodden Saints ," but haven't found it , I'm just happy having River of Red Wine for now.
Micheline sounded like a man i would like , writing would only be an association next to the heart of him.
Thats hard though , he was around your stomping grounds , while i was reading your "almost met" story half way down i said to myself " Damn , thats close ."
But you've come closer than anything Ive come to with a writer, I tend not to mix with the people too often.
By the way Ive been on your site for Bathtub Gin , I had given serious thought to submitting. I have so much scattered papers around that i want to a the very least try to see for a chapbook or a dozen rejection notices, anything really. I have alot of adresses to lit mags written down and your on top of the pile. I'm havent really sent anything in anywhere so I'm apprehensive to do anything, one day soon , probably in the new year , maybe to you.
Heres to Micheline .
