I think of myself sometimes as an emotion sculptor more than as a poet. In that I write to shape the emotions of the reader and not to fit words to rhyme and meter. I try to write poems that are not depend-ent on the language I write with.
These poems were all wrote in my sixty-fourth year or in what people say are my twilight years. I find this amusing since as I write this the oldest man in America is about fifty years older than me. But it makes for a nice book title.
