Philip F. Clark – Apr 13, 2017

Your poem touched me deeply, Arturo. It's so beautiful and resonant with such clarity of truth. I see that we share many of the same favorite poets -- for me, Carl Phillips, Ann Sexton, Sylvia Plath and Frank O'Hara surely. I look forward to reading more of your work. I think your new chap project will be wonderful. Every good wish to you. Philip F. Clark
