In Case You Didn't Know

Lawrence Ferlinghetti turned 90 yesterday. There are three poets that made me want to be a poet and not just a reader of poetry. Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Pablo Neruda, and Walt Whitman. Then E.E. Cummings, William Carlos Williams, and Gertrude Stein came along and challenged what I thought about poetry. The rest has yet to rest as I keep on writing.

Happy Birthday L.F!
