"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

What it’s about

Poetry is about – should be about –
the poet, through her words
telling the rest of us poor bastards
that she’s been there too,
and you know what?
It’s all going to be all right 
in the end.
