Favorite Stuff (poets, poems, quotes, hobbies, etc.)

My poetry is just prose written with rhythm looking for a melody.
.
Here we are, doing what we like, reading what we like, I already like you.
.

To get to the meat of my poetry read the Favorite File, then this years, whatever it may be.
.
In 2002, I met the Muse, who seem to unlock the poetry in me through his mere speech. He is the Sweet Talker. I have it organized in chronological order to follow like a novel/story of the progression of a love affair, the breakup and the reconciliation and then the final parting.
.
I stopped writing after the muse, I think, because I met a man that made me feel safe and loved. We got busy with life and travel and friends. He passed away after 10 years and I am back out here feeling unsafe again. Its an untethered future that's exciting and frightening.
.
Great poetry comes from great pain, but it also comes from great friends that encourage and read and critique, love and leave. Thank you, friends.
.
Current project is Silver Gold , a long poem Narrative

Its been a ride.
