Preface

Not being a programmer or coder, or believing that hiring such a person would be a wise allocation of my scarce resources, I have made use of a freely available blog format, for this site.

But it’s not a blog—it’s more like a book of so-called poems, all current, having been written during the most recent 50 years or so, continually scrutinized for maximum value to you, as I imagine & estimate it, as accurately as I am able—& continually revised—improved, I hope.

Many of the so-called poems have been posted or published, in the USA or elsewhere, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 years ago, or more & more recently. I hope more & more readers find them—my work isn’t done til they find & absorb them.

I don’t believe that any of them have been made obsolete at all, by any of the sudden or gradual changes in American life or human life in general—political or technical or this or that war or fashion.

It’s up to you to judge. But I wouldn’t post these so-called poems if I didn’t believe that they were extraordinarily worthy of your attention—a good investment. I’ve labored to make them so.

It doesn’t seem to me that it matters in what order you read the so-called poems.
