  1. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    I love to write poetry but mine seems so simple and unrefined. I understand that it takes practice and time.

    Yes, to your reasons of “why I am a poet”.
    All of them but especially ‘it gives the ache a name’. Perfect description.
    Thanks again for sharing this.

    1. I’m glad you liked it, Beth.
      Every poet starts somewhere and as you likely noticed in this lecture there are plenty of my poems that deserve no publicity beyond establishing a starting point.
      Keep naming the ache. Or trying to.
