A fresh and vigorous weed, always renewed and renewing, it will cut its wondrous way through rubbish and rubble.
I believe that poetry should communicate.
For every artist, experience is never complete until it has been reproduced in creative work.
I still use a typewriter from time to time, but because I can’t type as well as I used to, I really don’t use one very much.
