Thank you Rick! I have had a great night after spending time with good friends and literally singing his praises! Cried a few tears but enjoyed a lot of some amazing memories! What a talent!

Loved his speaking voice and his poems.


This is the only poem
I can read
I am the only one
can write it
I didn’t kill myself
when things went wrong
I didn’t turn
to drugs or teaching
I tried to sleep
but when I couldn’t sleep
I learned to write
I learned to write
what might be read
on nights like this
by one like me
How can they say my life is not a success? Have I not for more than sixty years got enough to eat and escaped being eaten?
